QI Comes of Age: Health Reform Accelerates


Intermountain Healthcare’s Institute for Health Care Delivery Research is pleased to host our 12th Annual ATP Alumni Conference on February 15 - 17, 2017 at the Newpark Resort in Park City, Utah.

Healthcare payment reform and its relation to "quality" is beginning to approach maturity as represented by the recent MACRA rules.  During this ATP Alumni conference, we will explore the content of MACRA and its relationship to the fundamental principles of continuous quality improvement and process management.  We will also link these ideas to other important and rapid developments in healthcare including the ongoing evolution and role of electronic health records.  Under the direction of Dr. Brent James, and including other acclaimed national experts in policy and process management, the conference promises to be an enjoyable learning experience.

We invite you to bring your CIO, fellow alumni, or any of your colleagues from your organization to attend the conference.  Group learning will facilitate organizational change as people throughout the organization gain a greater understanding and knowledge of quality.

We hope you will join us in beautiful Park City, Utah.  Sign up today for the 12th Annual ATP Alumni Conference, and join your fellow alumni and their CIOs in a profound and uplifting experience to acquire new knowledge, exchange encouragement and map plans for further progress in quality improvement.
