Clinical Care Transformation is a top priority across health systems.  Pressure to reduce variation in care and costs within organizations is at an all-time high. With so many competing quality initiatives in healthcare today, how does your organization decide which Quality Improvement project will have a long-term impact on promoting a culture of change when it comes to reducing cost, and improving quality of patient care within your network? 

Many of the country’s top healthcare systems are beginning to tackle this question by taking an innovative approach to improving quality where it matters most: in the operating room.

Join us for a roundtable webinar discussion led by chief quality officers within Adventist Health System and Northwell Health, to discuss an innovative way to reduce variation of care and costs.



What you’ll learn:

  • How to reduce variation of care through performance management systems
  • Objective quality metrics beyond case currency
  • Solutions to provide self-review and continuous expert feedback to improve surgical skills

who is this for:

  • Healthcare Executives managing Quality Improvement
  • Surgical-thought leaders

Clinical care transformation is critical to any healthcare delivery network. Quality and the continued pursuit of improvement within our organization is key to our long-term success.

Utilization of C-SATS across our surgical teams has shown significant improvements in key metrics; conversion to open, re-admit rates, blood loss, and length of stay.
