States are engaging in complex health IT implementations to lower provider burden and improve quality measurement reporting as part of overall efforts to achieve the Triple Aim: improve patient experience, improve the health of populations; and reduce the per capita cost of health care. Proactive, actionable, real-time measurement of programs, care delivery, and outcomes can be successfully supported by IT infrastructure that proves its value to healthcare and other sectors. Data liquidity is critical to ensuring that provider workflows and proven healthcare interventions reach into every practice for every patient at the right time. Panelists will describe how states are using innovation dollars to ensure robust, statewide quality measurement systems are designed with community consensus about what and how to measure care. States and healthcare organizations will learn about and see specific models, methods, and work products associated with governance, stakeholder engagement, and consensus-based health IT system design to replicate successful practices in their own communities.
