How Data Informs Action: A Discussion About the Alliance’s Hospital Value Report

Please join the Washington Health Alliance for a discussion about its recently released Hospital Value Report.

Value in health care means high quality and a good patient experience at a fair price. But as the Alliance showed in its recent members-only report on hospital value, high performance across all three components of value isn’t easy to come by.

Everyone agrees with the concept of high value care, but moving the market in that direction is much more challenging. Panelists will discuss specific initiatives each has undertaken to enhance health care value and the barriers that they faced in doing so. In addition, panelists will talk about how they incorporate information from external sources, such as Alliance reports, into strategic decisions and how they communicate those decisions with their customers.

Our panelists will include:

  • Fred Brown, Executive Director, Health Care Cost Management
  • David Buchholz, MD, Medical Director, Provider and Customer Engagement, Premera Blue Cross
  • Rick Cooper, Northwest Regional Market President for DaVita Medical Group
  • Nancy Kokenge, Area Vice President Client Consultant, Arthur J. Gallagher & Company
  • Bob Malte, Chief Executive Officer, EvergreenHealth 

 
Space is limited. Please RSVP. 

Virtual Meeting Option

For people who want to join virtually through a web conferencing system, we have a limited number of spots available. Priority will be given to those who would have to travel from outside the Seattle area to attend in person. If you are interested in joining, please register for the webinar.

Organizer

Washington Health Alliance

As a purchaser-led, multi-stakeholder collaborative with more than 185 participants, the Washington Health Alliance is committed to leading health system change in Washington state. The Alliance has a bold vision: that physicians, other providers and hospitals in the region will achieve the top 10 percent in performance nationally in the delivery of quality, evidence-based care and in the reduction of unwarranted variation, resulting in a significant reduction in medical cost trends. To achieve this goal, it will require the aligned efforts of those who give, get and pay for health care. A cornerstone of the Alliance’s work is the Community Checkup, a regional report to the public comparing the performance of clinics and hospitals for basic measures of quality care (www.wacommunitycheckup.org)
