The RWJF “Voices of Quality” video contest collected stories about how hospitals, clinics and others are using data that measure how health care providers perform to improve quality. Congratulations to our four winners.
Dean Clinic - Madison, Wis.
University of Virginia Health System - Charlottesville, Va.
UW Health - Madison, Wis.
The health care environment is changing with providers in all settings facing a new, data-driven era in American health care. Practices that are leveraging data that measure how health care providers perform to improve quality are increasingly well positioned for innovative public reporting and payment reform efforts being undertaken as part of health reform.
Winners were featured in a webinar January 13 showcasing their work.
Submissions were judged by an internal panel and evaluated on the following three criteria:
- Quality of the story and innovation (includes elements such as originality and quantifiable success).
- Potential for broad replication (includes whether the video is compelling, informative, and easy to follow so that others can achieve similar results).
- Applicability of the innovation to the topic.
