The QIO Program is launching a new, free learning series that offers health care providers nationwide the opportunity to participate in virtual training events focused on health care quality improvement. The series, entitled “Sharing Knowledge, Improving Health Care,” will feature training sessions led by recognized experts and thought leaders. Speakers will address hot topics in health care delivery transformation like value-based purchasing and meaningful use, and will connect these national themes with related local services, resources and support available to providers through the QIO Program.
The first virtual training session, entitled “The QIO Program in Action – National Benefits, Local Support”, will take place on Tuesday, August 4, 2015 from 3-4 p.m. EDT. During this kick-off webinar, Dennis Wagner, Director of the Quality Improvement and Innovation Group with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), will describe the vision of the QIO Program, provide information on the benefits of working with regional Quality Innovation Network-QIOs (QIN-QIOs) and share examples of local success stories involving providers, partners and patients. This information will give providers a better understanding of how they can take full advantage of their participation with the QIO Program. Providers will hear why their commitment is so valued and important, and better understand the impact that their local participation makes at the national level.
