Diamond, Vice President and Medical Director at Thomson Reuters Healthcare and President, Performance Excellence Associates provides an overview of the National Priorities Partnership (NPP). Convened by the National Quality Forum, the NPP has a vision for world-class, affordable health care and transformation of the US health care system. The NPP consists of twenty-eight organizations that are committed to improving health care and have collaboratively developed National Priority Goals targeted at proven ways to eliminate harm, waste, and disparities in care. Learn about the six priorities established by the NPP and why they are so important, as we move forward with ARRA and meaningful use of EHR’s. Understand what the “market drivers” are behind these goals and their impact on healthcare. The interview was conducted by Pam Brewer, Coordinator, Healthcare Information Systems, HIMSS.
