From quality measures to quality care: Turning data into action    

Moderator: Anna Daly, Vice President of Data Analytics and Innovation, Conduent


Daniel Gell MS, RN, Market Director of Care Management, Adventist Health Simi Valley & Adventist Health White Memorial

Clark Wheeler MS, RN, Director of Quality Management, St. Elizabeth Healthcare (OH)

"There is a gap in healthcare safety culture and the way health systems use data (or think they use data) to address quality and patient safety issues. Much of the data collection is manual and not integrated with financial, operational, and other data, resulting in a fragmented approach to safety analytics that’s not actionable or predictive. Our panel will discuss the use of data to develop quality improvement measures that result in quality care, sharing examples of how they’ve integrated data and analytics to produce actionable insights for better outcomes. We’ll offer proven strategies for driving a culture of quality and safety across your organization.

This session will include:

  • Expert perspectives on quality measurement and reporting

  • Best practices for using data to build a culture of quality and safety

  • Tips for effectively integrating financial, operational and clinical data"

Closing Keynote: Achieving High-Value Care Through a Systemic Approach

Dr. Peter Pronovost, Chief Clinical Transformation Officer, University Hospitals


Healthcare is riddled with defects in value. Among them are challenges associated with helping people stay well (preventive services) and get well (managing chronic disease and acute illness). Defects in value lead to immeasurable suffering for patients and contributes $1.4 trillion annually in healthcare costs. Learn how one health system developed a systematic approach to eliminate defects in value by aligning the system around optimizing value, making defects in value visible and deploying a management system to ensure defects are eliminated.
