Quality Matters: The New Data Dilemma - Hannibal 

About the Program: Physicians, practice managers, quality champions and other health care professionals need to be ready to access and effectively use clinical data in order to transition into the new era of data-driven health care.  

When Medicare’s payment programs reward quality over quantity, it’s clear the road to success relies upon confidence in high quality, accurate data, secured in a trusted health information exchange that delivers clear analysis of patients’ and populations’ healthcare trends. Physicians must identify and treat at-risk populations, proactively engage patients sooner, understand the performance of health interventions on health outcomes and reduce cost.  

This presentation is designed to provide physicians and clinicians with the knowledge to drive quality improvement and transform health care through the application of meaningful data analytics made possible by participation in a well-functioning health information exchange. Employing aggregated longitudinal clinical data can be a powerful strategy for all striving to successfully meet quality reporting requirements while improving population health management, risk management and clinical effectiveness.


1. Review quality metrics reporting possibilities as a result of involvement in a heath information exchange.
2. Analyze quality reporting requirements, evaluate available data sources, and formulate a plan for quality reporting.
3. Access longitudinal medical records to favorably affect patients’ care and community health. 
4. Calculate the use of business intelligence analytics to improve patient care and impact the bottom line.
