Value for Quality & Clinical Standardization
As the pace of change in healthcare increases and many are ill prepared for the impending shift from volume to value reimbursement, it is imperative that we focus on performance enhancement across all domains. Clinical standardization is critical to decrease cost and improve outcomes. Timely, targeted feedback to providers is a key element to rapid cycle improvement and change management. In the absence of valid and reliable assessment tools to manage this change, feedback is subjective and irregular. CareAssess™ quickly makes feedback a reliable and scaleable basis for improvement and standardization.
