Speaker: Melissa Stratman, CEO, Coleman Associates

Overview: “Data-driven decision making” and “team-based care” are two phrases that are thrown around everywhere in healthcare today. What does data-driven decision-making look like practically? How we can determine which metrics to use, why to use them and how to leverage them to impact decisions? This webinar will cover key operational and quality metrics that are used increasingly at the Care Team Level to guide decisions and help influence workflows and processes. Learn what a healthy, data-driven team looks like, discuss some of the characteristics of these high performing teams, and explore some steps to get you from here to there.

Target Audience: Care team members and operational and clinical leadership, as well as health center board members, executives, and quality improvement staff.

Cost: This live event is FREE for health centers (Health Center Program Awardees) and Primary Care Associations (PCAs) in Region VIII (CO, MT, ND, SD, UT, and WY).  Please visit the CHAMPS Region VIII Health Centers and Primary Care Associations webpage to determine if your organization qualifies for free participation.
