ISIS Represented at the AMA-convened Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement Meeting

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, November 21, 2012
Dr. Kieran Slevin, member of the ISIS Socioeconomic Committee, represented ISIS during the meeting of the AMA-convened Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement (PCPI) meeting on October 25, 2012. The PCPI is a national, physician-led program dedicated to enhancing quality and patient safety. Upon its inception in 2000, the PCPI's focus was on measure development for quality improvement. Since that time the PCPI has expanded its efforts in the realm of measure implementation, evaluation and maintenance; along with utilization in quality improvement projects and registries. At this meeting, the PCPI presented the new 2020 vision to become a national catalyst to achieve optimal health outcomes. To this end, the PCPI will no longer take the lead in measure development and maintenance activities; rather the new focus of the PCPI will be at the intersection of health-related outcomes, the National Quality Registry Network, and performance improvement strategies. Panel presentations and discussions addressed strategies to enhance transitions in care and national quality improvement initiatives. Slide presentations from the October 25 meeting are available at:
