We created our Quality Solutions Group (QSG) to respond to a growing demand for tailor-made assistance in today’s value-based environment. We help our clients with:
- Performance measure development and implementation. We can help you develop and adapt measures for diverse settings and data sources, including electronic clinical quality measures and patient-reported outcomes measures. We can also translate data into actionable information such as customized performance reports.
- Benchmarking, comparative analysis and identification of high performers and best practices. We can help you know where you stand, what you are doing right and who your best performers are.
- Innovative approaches for vulnerable populations. This can include those who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid, those who are impacted by social determinants and those with advanced care needs.
- Patient-centered practice transformation. We can help you work to transform health care delivery to what patients want it to be. Our stewardship of the largest Patient-Centered Medical Home program, the only Patient-Centered Specialty Practice program and other “medical neighborhood” programs gives us a unique insight and ability. We can tailor these innovations to address specific priorities, such as behavioral care.
- Using our proven evaluation methods to help your organization with web-based data submission systems and data management.
- Designing and conducting custom educational programs that earn continuing education credits.
