2013 Award Winners
The Arkansas Foundation for Medical Care (AFMC) could not have reached this milestone 20th Quality Conference without the support and participation of Arkansas’ health care community. It is with this appreciation in mind that AFMC celebrates two decades of recognizing quality improvement efforts of providers, stakeholders and patients. This year’s Quality Conference will focus on the spread of best practices through learning and action networks and small-group sharing during the first day, with breakout sessions on topics such as new regulations regarding Medicare quality of care concerns and the Medicaid Health Care Payment Improvement Initiative on the second day.
The theme of the 20th annual Quality Conference, “A Community of Quality – Celebrating 20 Years”, supports the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Quality Improvement Organization program’s efforts in the fight against poor, uncoordinated and unsafe care in America’s nursing homes, physician offices, hospitals and other care settings through partnership with patients, providers and stakeholders. The conference aims to facilitate exchange of information within Arkansas' health care system along with dissemination of best practices through outreach, education and social marketing. The Quality Conference provides opportunities to engage with beneficiaries, health care providers and stakeholders in an effort to produce the best possible care throughout every community in Arkansas.
