PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Providers must be involved on multiple
levels to help shape the rapidly evolving
healthcare system. Healthcare quality is
being increasingly measured, reported
publicly, and questioned by all interested
parties. There is a great urgency for
physicians and their staff to determine how
to improve their performance. Physicians
need to understand principles of quality
improvement, various tools they can use to
improve performance, the role of IT in
improving outcomes, and how to reduce
costs while improving quality.
The growing Accountable Care
Organization movement, particularly strong
in Massachusetts, creates a further
challenge for physicians to understand all
of the systems and tools that they need to
implement.
The Adoption of Maintenance of
Certification and Maintenance of Licensure
in Massachusetts will have an impact on
physicians. Physicians need to understand
the goal of MOL and MOC and the need to
continually improve public safety and
quality of care.
This meeting will look at the equity and
disparities in healthcare delivery and how
electronic health records and ACOs may
impact the healthcare quality and safety.
Physicians as champions of their patients'
care need to be vigilant about equity in
access to care and quality.
