KC QVIC: Health Technology Innovations (and Process & Documentation Improvement) | Kansas City Quality & Value Innovation Consortium

KC QVIC: Health Technology Innovations (and Process & Documentation Improvement)

Join us monthly at the Kauffman Foundation to discuss Value-Based Healthcare and Quality Outcomes

“Value-based care” is a healthcare model where the amount paid for healthcare is based on health outcomes. Providers are rewarded for helping patients improve their health, reduce the incidence and effects of chronic disease, and live healthier lives as evidenced by data. The fee-for-value model will drive down healthcare costs while improving clinical outcomes and helping people lead healthier lives.

This event will be held virtually via Zoom.
