Sidney Kimmel Medical College—PANEL: Rating doctor and hospital quality: Who is the best judge?

November 10, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

All are welcome & encouraged to attend this five person expert panel event.

As medical payment systems grapple with how to pay for “value not volume,” it’s natural (and essential) to ask: How do we determine value? How do we judge quality? Because this is a multi-faceted topic, we have gathered a panel which will speak from multiple points of view. Our goal is for everyone to leave the event with a deeper, more nuanced understanding of the issues and challenges, and hopefully with some new ideas about how to create meaningful solutions.

Please RSVP using the tinyURL at the bottom of this event to ensure enough refreshments for all.

These have created jobs and revenues for challenged rural and urban communities and played roles in advancing locally operated disease prevention, wellness support and healthy diet initiatives. Social enterprises are sustainable businesses that perform on triple bottom lines, typically measured in terms of planet, people and profit.
