Modern Healthcare

HHS on Tuesday created a summit that will enlist federal and private healthcare leaders to determine how to streamline and improve the agency’s quality programs.

The group, which will be called the Quality Summit, is in response to a recent executive order from President Donald Trump calling on federal health agencies to develop a strategy within six months that will align quality measures across Medicare, Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, the health insurance marketplace, the Military Health System and the Veterans Affairs health system.
