Join AHRQ, the American Hospital Association and Health Services Research (HSR) for a webinar on Sept. 16 from 1 to 2 p.m. ET that explores the "shoppable" nature of finding a nursing home and maternity care through the use of effective public reporting. In June, HSR published a special issue sponsored by AHRQ on improving the science and practice of public reporting of health care quality. During this upcoming webinar, “Achieving the Promise of Public Reporting,” participants will learn about:
- The advancement of public reporting research in recent years
- How report producers can maximize their reports’ usefulness and impact
- How a star-based summary rating system can influence nursing home report use
- Factors affecting the use of public reports for hospital maternity care, and major differences between what consumers want versus what information is available to them
Register now for the webinar. Presenters include Laurence Baker, Ph.D., Stanford School of Medicine; Brent Sandmeyer, M.P.H., AHRQ; Rachel Werner, M.D., Ph.D., Penn Medicine; and Maureen Maurer, M.P.H., American Institutes for Research.
