2017 Capstone Address
Cost & Quality Together Forever

As we transition from volume to value, all of us who touch healthcare are on a journey to improve care and lower cost.  This journey is driven by many factors including our knowledge about variation that exists in care delivery for the patients we treat each day.  By uniquely empowering clinicians with data for the patients they care for, Yale New Haven Health (YNHHS) has been nationally recognized for their progress in both improving quality while sustaining significant cost savings.  This quest for unparalleled value reflects the thoughtful deployment of technology, new ideas addressing clinical pain points and the development of specific patient quality data (locally called Quality Variation Indicators—or QVIs™) inextricably linked to variations in cost data.

You Will Learn:

  • How to define value for each patient
  • How to profile clinical and financial improvement opportunities
  • How to successfully engage clinical leaders in driving meaningful conversations in support of reducing avoidable variation for patients
  • How to successfully align providers in the new value based payment models
  • How improved quality improves margin
