HHS Announces Formation of Quality Summit

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Deputy Secretary Eric Hargan recently announced the formation of the Quality Summit (QS), which will bring together key industry stakeholders and government leaders to discuss how current quality programs administered by HHS can be further evaluated, adapted, and ultimately streamlined to deliver a value-based care model focused on improving outcomes for American patients. The Summit will be chaired by the Deputy Secretary and Peter Pronovost, M.D., Ph.D.​, an internationally renowned expert on healthcare quality and patient safety. 

The goal of the Summit is to create a discussion forum about how HHS can formulate a Health Quality Roadmap that will align and improve reporting on data and quality measures, keeping with President Trump’s June 24th executive order on price and quality transparency in healthcare. The Summit participants, to be comprised of government stakeholders and approximately 15 non-government healthcare industry leaders, will offer critical insight into discussions surrounding the modernization of HHS’s quality programs that will build upon a patient-centered approach that increases competition, quality, and access to care. The Summit participants will also discuss the task of identifying burdensome regulations and the mechanisms needed to improve providers abilities to deliver high-quality care to their patients.
HHS will accept nominations for participants till ​Wednesday July 31, 2019. Nominations should consist of a one-page cover letter summarizing an applicant’s qualifications along with an applicant’s resume or curriculum vitae (CV)​. Nominations must be submitted via e-mail to DeputySecretary@hhs.gov with the subject line: “Quality Summit Application.”​
