About MNCM’s Annual Seminar: MN Community Measurement’s Annual Seminar presents the most relevant topics in health care quality, measurement and improvement through meaningful keynote speakers, substantial panel discussions and worthwhile breakout sessions.
The first phase of this project began with an internal review of the drivers of provider burden in quality measurement and reporting identified through a variety of sources – technical assistance provided through data submission and validation processes, feedback gathered in Q/A calls with data submitters, variance requests, information collected through the Direct Data Submission portal, and more.
MNCM will be engaging Minnesota providers currently submitting quality data to review the results of the internal evaluation to provide further insights on drivers of provider burden and potential solutions, as well as information on their data and what’s needed to advance quality improvement within their patient populations.
If the MNCM Board determines that there is sufficient interest for the effort to advance, MNCM will proceed with additional efforts to determine the best technical approach to accomplish the goals, the resources necessary to support the service and potential models for financial sustainability of the service.
