NASHVILLE– Feb. 22, 2013 — DC2 will attend The OrthoForum’s national meeting as a sponsor on March 8-9 in Dallas, TX and will speak about the increasing importance for providers to transition to quality-based care.
The OrthoForum’s national meeting brings together physicians and healthcare professionals from regional OrthoForum conferences located across the United States. The Four Seasons Resort & Club Dallas at Las Colinas will serve as the venue. DC2 will partner with Universal Research Solutions’ OBERD system to present conference attendees with complete clinical pathways for data collection and quality metric generation.
DC2 speakers will include Founder and CEO Christina Cook, Ph.D., and Risa Tyo, Pharm. D.
DC2 will be assisting the OrthoForum group in their continued pursuit of the nhighest quality of patient care and cost containment in healthcare,” said Cook. “We want to help the OrthoForum become the standard of quality based care for spine and total joints in the U.S.”
With the advent of healthcare reform, the importance of collection data as statistical proof of quality care continues to grow for healthcare providers. Both private and public payers are changing their reimbursement practices based on statistical data linked to metrics like surgical outcomes and patient satisfaction. DC2’s clinical pathways offer avenues for providers to utilize to meet the requirements of payer groups and maximize their reimbursement.
OBERD, or Outcomes Based Electronic Research Database, was developed by Universal Research Solutions to provide patient-centric, intuitive data collection to both researchers and clinicians. Universal Research Solutions is based in Columbia, MO.
