ABQAURP's 43rd Annual Health Care Quality & Patient Safety Conference (HCQ&PS) will deliver multiple innovations, models, and best practices that have evolved to address the challenges you are facing. As we address our core competencies, high quality and value-based care remain anchored to the partnership between patients and their health care providers.
As we move beyond the 10th anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, it is a good time to reflect on how value-based care has impacted the health care landscape, as well as focus on the future to see where we are headed. You're invited to join ABQAURP in discovering the crucial steps needed to continue this journey, as payors and providers come together to bring value to the forefront of medical practice, with the shared goal of improving our population's health.
Though there are hurdles to overcome, our expert faculty looks to provide insight into the importance of systems and team-based approaches to topics such as our age appropriate care, the impact of social determinants of health, assessing how integrated behavioral health and multidisciplinary care can enhance patient care in any setting, and tools and technology that will support clinical care delivery, utilization management, and documentation. Discover how CMS is transforming health care to maximize compensation while providing value, reducing the reporting burden, plus establishing a sustainable path to quality health care.
