To accelerate the spread of innovation in care delivery, CIN will focus on five critical topic areas in 2018 and 2019:
- Making improvements in behavioral health care, with an emphasis on cost management
- Addressing social needs that affect health, with an emphasis on cost management
- Understanding the fundamentals of managing financial risk and the cost of care
- Preventing burnout and promoting provider and staff resilience
- Leading change
Key Quality Improvement Topics
Below are tools and resources to help health care leaders address these critical topic areas and make change in their own organizations.
Preventing Burnout and Promoting Provider and Staff Resilience
Burnout can be defined as emotional exhaustion, interpersonal disengagement, and a low sense of personal accomplishment. A growing body of evidence shows that provider and staff burnout can negatively impact patient outcomes. Learn tools and resources to tackle this issue in your own organization in our partner report, CIN Connections, Spring 2018: Healing the Healers and CIN Resource Kit: Improving Provider Well-Being.
Social Needs That Impact Health
To improve population health and manage total cost of care, medical providers must support patients, families, and communities in addressing social needs that impact health. CIN Connections, Summer 2018: Beyond the Exam Room and the CIN Resource Page: Addressing Social Needs That Impact Health help address this issue.
