Community Event Focuses on Healthcare Measurement in Action

Mylia Christensen

Next Tuesday, join the Kentuckiana Health Collaborative for an interactive Community Health Forum centered on healthcare measurement action and alignment.

To kick off the event, Mylia Christensen, Executive Director, Oregon Health Care Quality Corporation (Q Corp), will provide an overview of Q Corp’s work to drive improvements through performance measurement of health plans and providers. She will also discuss the tools they provide consumers to compare healthcare results, costs, and patient experience. After Christensen’s presentation, participants will participate in small group discussions to brainstorm barriers to effective health measurement in our community and identify the next steps for aligning health measurement.

For more information on Q Corp’s efforts, read Oregon’s white paper, “Aligning Health Measurement in Oregon,” which details the project, key findings, and recommendations to achieve the Triple Aim goals of improving the patient experience, improving the health of populations, and reducing the per capita cost of healthcare.

The June 6 event will begin at 7:30 a.m. with breakfast and networking. Christensen’s discussion will begin at 8 a.m. The event is free to employees of KHC member organizations (click here to see if your organization is a member) and $35 for non-members. To register, click here.
