Clinicians are barraged with healthcare quality measures. Most of these measurements have diverged from what clinicians consider the essence of their profession. Partners HealthCare has embarked on a journey to resolve its clinicians’ concern. The foundation of this effort includes clinical registries that are embedded within its EHR which define quality in a way that resonates with clinicians. In addition, broad access to a near real-time data and analytics platform that is part of the enterprise data warehouse has been instrumental.
Join this session to learn how Partners HealthCare is using physician engagement strategies and analytics to reinvigorate clinicians and improve the quality of care for its patients.
