Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

This series provides vital information for evolving industry to align their services and products with the quality-focused healthcare marketplace.

The Affordable Care Act helped to mark a transition in the United States healthcare system from a focus on volume to a focus on value. This value is being captured through the use of quality measures which have emerged from a variety of healthcare stakeholder groups. Healthcare quality measures are rapidly changing the behaviors of providers, payers, and consumers. This online continuing education series provides a comprehensive overview of the healthcare quality landscape including national priorities, and the complexity of quality measure development, endorsement and implementation. A glossary, visually intuitive diagrams, and testimonials from experts in the field introduce the learner to various programs and initiatives aimed at optimizing resource utilization, eliminate waste, and improving accountability through healthcare quality measurement.

The Healthcare Quality: Measurement and Implications series includes two interactive, online modules representing a comprehensive introduction to the terminology, the trends, the stakeholders and leadership, and the quality improvement programs at play in the current healthcare environment. These two modules represent 3.5 hours of certified continuing education. The modules are available anytime and anywhere through the online portal at
