Overview and Purpose:
By definition, power is the “ability to act or produce an effect.” Transmitting the power of engagement into each facet of health and healthcare mechanics is a critical strategy to improving care. Engaging patients (and their families), providers, communities and payers contributes to the desired effect of better clinical outcomes, reduced costs and improved care coordination.
This year’s Quality Forum is geared up to harness the energy of attendees and presenters to generate real life solutions to challenges facing North Dakota’s communities across the healthcare continuum.
