At September conference, companies will jointly address how hospitals connect compliance with quality

Verge Health, a health care risk management company, and Courtemanche & Associates, a Charlotte-based healthcare accreditation and regulatory compliance consulting firm, will connect compliance to hospital quality measures this September at the only conference that focuses on healthcare quality, NAHQ Next.

At “Turning Data into Actionable Outcomes,” healthcare professionals can better understand key data they’re already collecting and discover new insights to be gleaned from that information. Using a speaker-supplied take-home tool, participants can apply new methods for reviewing data strategy.

The two companies recently announced a strategic partnership to deliver the GRCH protocol. The consulting services of Courtemanche & Associates, combined with Verge Health’s Converge technology platform, provides healthcare delivery organizations with a comprehensive evaluation of their current risk position in the form of a baseline GRCH Maturity Score, with corresponding action plans to evolve and break down silos across data, technology, and culture.
