Mark your calendars to attend Making Health Care More Affordable: The Intersection of Quality and Cost, on April 17 at Monona Terrace in Madison, WI.
Hear from Two Health Care Leaders
Two of the country’s leading voices on health care cost and affordability are featured on the agenda: Francois de Brantes, a nationally recognized thought leader on health care value and Jonathan Mathieu from the Center for Improving Health Care, who is an expert on cost variation. Mathieu will be comparing cost variations in Wisconsin to other states he has studied.
A Local Top-Rated Health Care Provider
Bellin Health will provide a local example of progress to improve patient outcomes while controlling costs. This event is hosted by the WI Collaborative for Healthcare Quality (WCHQ), a voluntary, provider-led health care improvement and public reporting organization. Chris Queram, CEO of WCHQ states, “the pressure is on us in the health care community to not only provide the highest quality care possible, but to take actions that increase price transparency and make care more affordable for our patients”.
One Example on Improving Quality
This event is just one example of the strategies WCHQ pursues to improve quality, control costs and make health care more transparent for clinicians and the public. Their good work is the reason why they received our Health Transformation Award in 2017.
The cost of the seminar is $50 and a webinar option is also available.
Cheryl participates in a number of national and regional initiatives that align with The Alliance’s mission of controlling costs, improving quality and engaging individuals in their health. She serves on the Advisory Board of the Wisconsin Population Health Institute and the board of the Wisconsin Collaborative for Healthcare Quality.
Prior to joining The Alliance, Cheryl was a program manager at Meriter Hospital in Madison. She earned a master’s degree in social work from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
