PLAINSBORO, N.J.—Quality measurement has become increasingly important as healthcare in the United States shifts from a volume-based reimbursement system to one based on value. On June 26 at 1 pm EST, The American Journal of Managed Care (AJMC) will host a Tweetchat with National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) President Margaret E. O’Kane, MHA, on the importance of quality measurement.
O’Kane will answer questions from participants and discuss topics including:
“It’s an exciting time in healthcare quality,” said O’Kane. “With so many opportunities to enhance the value of healthcare, this Tweetchat gives us a chance to take a moment and discuss some of the key topics that will influence the conversation in the coming years.”
In February, O’Kane wrote a special guest commentary for AJMC on how the inclusion of measurement and accountability in US healthcare has improved both cost and quality.
