This year’s themes and topics will address data solutions and next-generation technologies that can improve all aspects of health care quality.

Making Data Useful

We are in a world where more data than ever are at our fingertips. But that data does us no good unless it is useful. Explore ways organizations have made data more accessible, accurate, and available to measure what matters, drive clinical decisions, and improve quality.


Driving Digital Quality

The transition to digital quality needs the support of the entire organization. Data, IT, Quality Improvement, Quality Reporting, Contracting, and Clinical Teams must work together for a successful digital quality transition. Whether it be developing a FHIR data strategy, implementing operational workflows, or ensuring data availability, discover how organizations are successfully managing this transition.

NCQA in Action

With thousands of organizations accredited or recognized by NCQA, there are countless stories of how NCQA products and programs have been used to drive real world results. Hear from NCQA customers about how they implemented NCQA products and programs and leveraged them to improve operations, succeed in value-based contracting, and improve patient care.

Quality Innovation

As health care evolves, more organizations are developing innovative ways to engage patients, deliver care, and improve quality. Whether it be new technologies, unique care models, or forward-thinking quality programs, there’s no shortage of innovative ways to improve care. Here is your opportunity to learn about some of the more innovative solutions being implemented today.

Results Through Relationships

Quality can't be improved in a silo. It takes teamwork. In today’s world, its necessary for care delivery organizations, health plans, technology companies, government, and others to work together drive these results. Hear from organizations that developed strong and innovative partnerships that improved the life and health for the people they serve.

In Pursuit of Equity

Advancing health equity is a priority for many in healthcare. But organizations sometimes struggle with clear goals, a cohesive strategy, and the ability to measure results. Hear from those that are actively working to improve equity. Learn from their successes, be aware of their challenges, and explore ways you can apply their learnings to your own efforts.
