Harnessing the Power of Your EHR for Quality Improvement: Successful Strategies from Primary Care Colleagues
Start Date: April 30, 2015
End Date: April 30, 2015
Thursday, April 30 from 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. ET
This webinar is designed for primary care practices interested in improving care delivery and those who support them in making changes. Health IT can be an important and effective tool for primary care practices to use in their ongoing quality improvement (QI) efforts. However, significant barriers have limited the use of health IT to support QI. Despite these barriers, exemplary primary care practices and organizations have found ways to effectively use health IT to support QI efforts. These practices can offer lessons to support and increase the use of health IT to improve the quality of health care delivery and patient and population health outcomes.
The session draws on findings of a recently-published AHRQ white paper and will focus on how three exemplary primary care organizations are working towards maximizing the functionality of EHRs and other forms of health IT to use these tools efficiently and effectively for QI.
Panelists represent a small independent primary care practice; a large academic primary care practice; and a health information network that supports primary care practices, particularly federally qualified health centers and other safety net clinics:
