Legislating health care policies and regulations is a difficult task that once in practice may have unintended consequences with long-term implications. The good news is that while issues concerning access and reimbursement continue, the underlying work to address population health, quality improvement, and patient safety is forging ahead.

This session was recorded live at our 2018 Annual Health Care Quality & Patient Safety Conference and is a portion of the online course entitled: Navigating What’s Next with Population Health, Quality Improvement, and Patient Safety.

Engaged employees achieve higher performance benchmarks which results in improved patient outcomes and organizational achievements. This course will provide methods to identify engaged employees and how to avoid turnover and physician burnout to position your organization for success.

At the conclusion of the activity, attendees will be able to:
  • Define Population Health Management
  • Define engagement
  • Discuss how engagement is measured
  • Analyze the impacts of disengagement
  • Explain how we achieve desired results
