In this ever-changing health care era, we are continually faced with new quality measures and new payment systems along with greater expectations from the public, surveyors, and policymakers. Adapting to these demands requires innovative strategies. This presentation will summarize the new measures and define the criteria you need to succeed. Internal measures and strategies will be discussed based on the new survey system as well as new payment systems. Through questions and shared dialog, we will refine the measures, strategies, and tactics needed to thrive.
