When performance measurement, clinical registries and quality improvement work together, everyone benefits.

Health care is evolving:  the focus is on value-based care, the Quality Payment Program and a new federal administration poised to change direction of national health policy. Together, these developments present long range challenges and opportunities that impact improvement efforts.
This year, PCPI is holding its Spring Conference May 9-10 at the Loews Chicago O’Hare Hotel, alongside the 2017 National Clinical Registry Conference, co-produced by NQRN and the Council of Medical Specialty Societies (CMSS) May 10-11 at the Westin O’Hare.
In the spirit of bringing attendees from the two conferences together, all registrants are invited to attend the Welcome & Networking Reception, sponsored by IMPAQ Strategy, the evening of May 10.

Pre-Registration for this conference ends at 12:01am, Central Time on May 4.  After this time, only onsite registrations will be accepted.

Program Information

PCPI Spring Conference: Addressing the improvement challenge - practical strategies for high quality measures

Tuesday May 9th:
The agendas of the PCPI advisory committees are full. Join colleagues and thought leaders in the discussions of the Measure Advisory Committee (MAC) and learn about the progress on several projects, including the Call to Action Paper, the PCPI Member Measure Testing Toolkit, and emerging issues in measurement science.

For the latest on our QI efforts, hear a review of QI program 2017 initiatives; a discussion on potential cross-cutting QI initiatives that member organizations may tackle together; plans to gather and share member QI lessons and stories; and a tour of the new PCPI online training program during the Quality Improvement Advisory Committee (QIAC).

Take advantage of a half-day QI workshop and learn about Lean, Six Sigma and the Model for Improvement, as well as key concepts and tools used in health care process improvement. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to participate in a fun and interactive team exercise that drives home key takeaways from the workshop. Three hours of AMA PRA Category 1 Credit is available.

Stay for dinner with our Leadership Circle event: Transforming the point of care - driving quality improvement in the ambulatory environment. Henry Otero, MD, Virginia Mason Institute, will give a presentation on their quality improvement and patient safety programs.
Wednesday May 10th:
Join your performance measurement and improvement colleagues for a full day focused on addressing significant challenges of clinical quality measurement with a series of practical examples and real world experiences.

PCPI staff will be hosting breakfast office hours and networking, designed to mirror the breakfast roundtable discussions that were introduced at the 2016 PCPI Fall Conference. Staff will respond to questions received from previous office hours sessions. Bring your questions related to measure development, specifications, and testing. You can optionally submit questions in advance by emailing us or by posting to the PCPI Online Community.

National Clinical Registry Conference
Co-produced by NQRN and CMSS:  Clinical Registries - Connecting for Improved Health Outcomes

Wednesday May 10th:
For those in the earlier stages of planning or developing a registry, or who simply want to learn more about the benefits of operating a registry and how to get started, an introductory registry workshop is being offered the afternoon of May 10 for an additional fee.

The NQRN Steering Committee will have an open session the afternoon of May 10.

Connect with your registry, performance measurement, and improvement colleagues at a new social networking reception, sponsored by IMPAQ Strategy, the evening of May 10. The reception is included in your registry conference registration.

Thursday May 11th:
The national clinical registry community is evolving at a rapid pace - join a critical mass of your peers in the registry community on May 11 for the full registry conference day. Interact with and learn from thought leaders and influencers – those with insight and solutions to common problems. Come up to speed on the latest ways in which registries are being used for learning and improvement.

Expectations are rising for clinical data registries as part of our national measurement and improvement infrastructure. Join us and gain insight on the impact of a changing federal policy environment on registries. Be a part of a discussion around registry interoperability.
