Upcoming All-Alliance Meeting: How Data Informs Action

Wednesday, September 20, 2017
Networking: 9:30 am to 10:00 am
Program: 10:00 am to 11:30 am
Cambia Grove, 1800 9th Ave, Seattle, suite 250

The meeting is open to Alliance members only. Register here.

Please join the Washington Health Alliance for a discussion about its recently released Hospital Value Report.

Value in health care means high quality and a good patient experience at a fair price. But as the Alliance showed in its recent members-only report on hospital value, high performance across all three components of value isn’t easy to come by.

Everyone agrees with the concept of high value care, but moving the market in that direction is much more challenging. Panelists will discuss specific initiatives each has undertaken to enhance health care value and the barriers that they faced in doing so. In addition, panelists will talk about how they incorporate information from external sources, such as Alliance reports, into strategic decisions and how they communicate those decisions with their customers.

Our panelists will include:

  • Fred Brown, Executive Director, Health Care Cost Management
  • David Buchholz, MD, Medical Director, Provider and Customer Engagement, Premera Blue Cross
  • Rick Cooper, Northwest Regional Market President for DaVita Medical Group
  • Nancy Kokenge, Area Vice President Client Consultant, Arthur J. Gallagher & Company
  • Bob Malte, Chief Executive Officer, EvergreenHealth

Space is limited. Please RSVP.

Virtual Meeting Option

For people who want to join virtually through a web conferencing system, we have a limited number of spots available. Priority will be given to those who would have to travel from outside the Seattle area to attend in person. If you are interested in joining, click here to register for the webinar.

About Washington Health Alliance

The Washington Health Alliance is a place where stakeholders work collaboratively to transform Washington state’s health care system for the better. The Alliance brings together organizations that share a commitment to drive change in our health care system by offering a forum for critical conversation and aligned efforts by stakeholders: purchasers, providers, health plans, consumers and other health care partners. The Alliance believes strongly in transparency and offers trusted and credible reporting of progress on measures of health care quality and value. The Alliance is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) nonprofit with more than 185 member organizations. A cornerstone of the Alliance's work is the Community Checkup, a report to the public comparing the performance of medical groups, hospitals and health plans and offering a community-level view on important measures of health care quality (www.wacommunitycheckup.org).
