Topic: Bright Spotting:
Finding and learning from the right patients to improve outcomes
Guest: Cole Zanetti
Many people agree that the US healthcare system needs to change, but how to go about that complex change is not so easy to see. The Triple Aim Initiative of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement states that new designs need to create better care for individuals, better health for populations, and lower per capita costs—simultaneously. Our guest this month is one of the many innovators who have accepted this challenge.
Cole Zanetti will join the call to share some of the research tools and practices, including predictive analytics and Positive Deviance, he is using in his work. Please bring your own experience and your voice to this vital conversation
