With the rapid, widespread changes affecting the U.S. health care landscape now and into the future, it is important for providers, patients and stakeholders to have a clear blueprint of what’s ahead in order to build a solid foundation of evidence-based, quality care. This year’s Quality Conference will focus on the spread of best practices through talk show style and panel discussions during learning and action networks on the first day, with breakout sessions on topics such as patient and family engagement, Meaningful Use and practice transformation, and antipsychotic use reduction in long-term care on the second day.
The theme of the 21st annual Quality Conference, “Building a New Home in Health Care”, 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 community organizing. 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.
