We look forward to a long-term partnership that will create sustainable care transformation by directly engaging specialists in data-driven discussions about quality, practice variation and the cost of care.
San Rafael, CA (PRWEB) March 25, 2015
QURE Healthcare, a leader in quality measurement and clinician engagement, announced the completion of the first round of a year-long practice pattern measurement and feedback project with a large, multi-hospital system in the Midwest. The health system is using QURE’s Clinical Performance and Value (CPV®) vignettes to engage orthopedic surgeons around quality improvement and variation reduction. This level of physician engagement will complement the ongoing efforts of the health system to succeed in new payment models by delivering high-quality, high-value care.
Working with a group of elite orthopedic surgeons, QURE has deployed its CPV® vignette system, a set of validated virtual patient cases and corresponding evidence-based feedback system. The CPV® system measures current practice patterns, identifies opportunities to reduce variation, and directly engages physicians to enhance the system’s value-based care capabilities.
“It is an honor to be working with health care innovators who are committed to delivering the highest quality and best value to patients,” said Dr. John Peabody, president of QURE Healthcare. “We look forward to a long-term partnership that will create sustainable care transformation by directly engaging specialists in data-driven discussions about quality, practice variation and the cost of care.”
