Webinar: Using Data to Improve Asthma Control: Asthma Quality Measures
November 21, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Improving Asthma Control Learning Collaborative
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) launched the Improving Asthma Control Learning Collaborative or “Learning Collaborative” to support state Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) agencies’ efforts to improve health outcomes among beneficiaries with asthma.
Through the Learning Collaborative, state Medicaid and CHIP agencies and their partners will have the opportunity to expand their knowledge of evidence-based asthma interventions and Medicaid- and CHIP-coverable services, improve their ability to conduct quality improvement (QI) projects related to asthma outcomes, and engage in state-to-state learning.
The Learning Collaborative has two components: a webinar series beginning in October 2019 and an affinity group beginning in March 2020. The webinar series will include presentations from experts in the field as well as tools that states can use to drive improvement in asthma control and outcomes. States interested in taking action on the concepts and tools introduced through the webinar series will have the opportunity to participate in an action-oriented affinity group, which will support states in designing and implementing QI projects in their state.
Webinar #2: “Using Data to Improve Asthma Control: Asthma Quality Measures”
November 21, 2019, 2:00p.m. ET
This webinar will focus on how states can use asthma quality measures and other data to drive asthma quality improvement activities. Presenters will identify measures related to key drivers of asthma control, demonstrate how states can use data to identify target project areas, and lead a discussion on the various uses of asthma quality measures including quality improvement, performance monitoring, and public health surveillance.
