Measuring What Matters

Location: Virtual

Date: Thursday, February 25, 2021

Time: 8:30–12 p.m.

About the Event

The goal of health care is to create value by improving the outcomes that matter to patients for the money spent to achieve those outcomes. Join other health care leaders to learn the “how to” of outcomes measurement, including where to start, what measures to use, how to calculate associated costs and how to use the tools currently available.

Participants will get to know the Capability, Comfort and Calm framework, which simplifies and streamlines outcome measurement and evaluation. They will also discuss overcoming barriers to measurement, as well as how to support a learning culture that enables continuous care delivery improvement.

This workshop will be led by Dell Medical School faculty Elizabeth Teisberg, Ph.D.; Scott Wallace, J.D., MBA; Alice Andrews, Ph.D.; Kathy Carberry, RN, MPH; Carlos Mery, M.D., MPH; Amy Madore, MPA; and Christina Åkerman, M.D., Ph.D., the former president of the International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement.
