For decades, medical professionals have relied on the American Cancer Society, American Diabetes Association and American Heart Association for scientific guidelines on prevention and management of the nation’s most prevalent chronic diseases.
In 2011, the three organizations joined forces to create The Guideline AdvantageTM, a program that uses data collection, analysis and feedback to translate prevention and treatment guidelines into practice within the outpatient setting.
The program is particularly relevant in light of the current healthcare environment, aligning with key national initiatives and supporting Meaningful Use and Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) initiatives.
During this 60-minute webinar, you will learn about The Guideline AdvantageTM and the opportunities it offers for outpatient health care providers.
What you will learn
- Understand how population health tools can be applied to support outpatient quality improvement initiatives
- Awareness of The Guideline Advantage’s key programmatic opportunities
- Recognition of how quality improvement projects can be successfully executed in the outpatient setting
