Meaningful use means you change outcomes

Quality Measurement BY providers NOT TO providers.

70% of rural PCPs work with a Regional Extension Center.

130,000 PCPs working with local non-profits to change care delivery.

Challenge #1 was around Transitions of Care.

But it hides a lot of complexity.

The prize isn’t money….

The prize is connection…. to communities that want to implement the solution.
