MHA is hosting an educational webinar for MHA and MA Coalition for the Prevention of Medical Errors members on Tuesday, June 20th from noon to 1:00 pm regarding the Center for Healthcare Information and Analysis (CHIA)’s consumer healthcare transparency website. The site, which is now in development. will publish provider price, quality and safety information relating to certain procedures.
CHIA is working toward a fall 2017 launch date for the "Phase 1" site, which will contain information about a defined set of medical procedures. CHIA has partnered with the Betsy Lehman Center for Patient Safety (BLC) in developing the website's information on care quality.
The webinar will include overviews of:
The purpose of the healthcare transparency website
The process through which CHIA is developing the site
Key components of the site (cost, quality/safety, consumer decision aids)
Principles guiding the selection of quality and safety measures
Messaging that is being developed to help consumers understand how to use the site—and what can and can’t be understood from cost and quality data alone
Staff from CHIA and the BLC will also provide an overview of the multi-phase project and answer questions. For further information, please contact Debbie Ryan, MHA Senior Administrative Assistant and Project Coordinator at email@example.com
