Sponsored by: Healthcare Report Cards: How To Get an A+ in the Public Reporting of Healthcare Quality Data

Healthcare Report Cards: How To Get an A+ in the Public Reporting of Healthcare Quality Data, a June 7, 2006 audio conference, will examine why healthcare providers and payors are choosing to publicly rate their quality performance, how they've structured their quality report cards and the impact that this can have on a healthcare organization's business.

With the advent of consumer-driven healthcare plans, more health plans and hospitals are publishing quality and performance ratings on their web site. While the public reporting of healthcare quality data is voluntary, more and more organizations are making this data available and some believe it is just a matter of time before it is mandatory.

During this 90-minute audio conference, your expert panel of speakers, Paul L. Green, principal with Greenlight Healthcare Consulting and Christine Profit-Orok, project leader of cost and quality at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, will provide inside information on why organizations should consider publicly posting performance data and the steps to take to launch public report cards.

3.) Lifestyle Incentives Rewards Programs Encourage Healthy Lifestyles

Changing healthcare trends, including movement from one-time treatment costs for acute conditions to blank checks for chronic care, challenge employers' ability to safeguard both employee health and financial viability. While dependent upon employee productivity for industrial progress, employers and health plans must maintain a bottom line. According to a 2003 report by the Partnership for Solutions, a research group at Johns Hopkins University, people with chronic conditions account for 88 percent of all prescriptions filled, 72 percent of all physician visits and 76 percent of all inpatient stays. These numbers do not appear to be decreasing.
