Jennifer Hornung Garvin, PhD, MBA, RHIA, CTR, CPHQ, CCS, FAHIMA – Health Information: The Heart of the Matter
Framing Question for the Session: How do data and analytics help my daily work?
Dr. Jennifer Garvin, the Division Director and Associate Professor in the Health Information Management and Systems Division in the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences at OSU, spent the morning of April 15, 2020 asking HPN virtual conference attendees to evaluate how they collect, verify, and apply data to inform their clinical and administrative decision-making.
Framing Question for the Session: What quality measures will most define my work in the coming decade?
HPN Spring Meeting attendees took an in depth look at how data is used to define quality measures on April 16, 2020 with Jeff Geppert, Senior Research Leader on the Battelle Health and Consumer Solutions team. Discussing the costs, the ethical imperative, and the explicit/potential benefits of quality improvement efforts, Jeff stressed that quality pursuits should seek to balance accountability and benefit across individual patients, professionals, organizations, and the population at large.
Lauren Byrne, Director of Population Health Research and Educational Outreach at the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in Chicago, Illinois, is responsible for providing oversight and leadership for research and evaluation of the impact of key ACGME initiatives on the improvement of population health. Leading our discussion, Lauren summarized the data that supports annual GME accreditation, and offered several examples of how ACGME analyzes this data to drive policies and decisions.
Our apologies - technical issues resulted in our losing the first half of Lauren's excellent presentation, though the second half and Q&A is preserved.
