Conference Agenda:

...from industry expert, Dr. Dale Bratzler, medical director of the Hospital
Interventions Quality Improvement Organization Support Center and the Hospital
Quality of Care Measures Special Study at the Oklahoma Foundation for Medical
Quality.

Dr. Dale Bratzler

Current quality measures focus on patient care upon
admittance and end of stay but tend to ignore all
aspects of care during the patient's stay, says
Dr. Bratzler. He identifies several areas where
improvement may result in better transitions of
care, including the patient's discharge from the
hospital.
Listen to Dr. Braztler's describe these areas.

In Dr. Braztler's roles at the Oklahoma Foundation for Medical Quality, he
provides clinical and technical support for local and national hospital
QI initiatives. He is a past president of the American Health Quality
Association and currently serves on the National Advisory Council for
the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.

Dr. Bratzler has published and presented locally and nationally on many
occasions on topics related to healthcare quality, particularly related
to improving care for pneumonia, increasing vaccination rates, and
reducing surgical complications.
