Providing the very best care—the goal of all hospitals and care givers—must include an understanding of the patient perspective. Patient characteristics such as race, ethnicity and language preference may impact their perception of the care provided. Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) scores are used to measure patients' perspectives on hospital care and are increasingly important for hospitals and their quality reporting requirements.
This webinar, in conjunction with the Institute for Diversity in Health Management, will examine the relationship between cultural competency practices and HCAHPS scores. Recent research from Robert Weech-Maldonado, PhD at the University of Alabama at Birmingham has examined this link and the factors behind it. In addition, Jonathan Levy, director of language services at CyraCom International and commissioner on the Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters has examined this relationship. In this webinar, you will hear from both as they present the latest findings from their work and how it impacts what hospitals do in providing equitable care to patients and the communities they serve.
Health Care Reform imposes a number of new requirements on the benefits that must be covered by certain group health plans. Many of these requirements take effect for plan years beginning on or after January 1, 2014. Health care HR leaders, hospitals, and health systems need to prepare for this impending change.
Is your organization prepared for 2014 health care plan requirements? The time has come for employers to decide whether to play or pay under the employer shared responsibility mandate in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). If the answer is to play, employers need to take steps now to comply with the employer shared responsibility requirements and avoid significant penalties that may apply for failure to offer coverage to full-time employees or for offering unaffordable or insufficient coverage to full-time employees.
The webinar will focus on the steps other hospitals and health systems are taking and summarize the recent regulatory developments and transitional guidance including:
As health care delivery reshapes, hospitals are using new and creative ways to engage with physicians to create a more integrated and seamless care system. Jim Burke, MD, senior vice president and chief physician executive, and Charles Finch, DO, FACOEP, chief academic officer, Scottsdale Healthcare, will share their efforts to use continuing medical education (CME) offerings to align physicians across the health care system and to drive performance improvement.
To participate in the live event, you will need a telephone line and a computer with an Internet connection.
