On March 23 the Licentiam Team attended an event hosted by ProPublica at the Kaiser Family Foundation Barbara Jordan Conference Center in Washington, D.C., convening doctors, patient safety advocates and other health care professionals for an exchange of ideas on the enduring problem of patient harm, access to data on individual doctors, and ways to improve health care quality.

Conference highlighted a group of articles related to how physicians practice medicine. Specific topics include the cost to physician practices of tracking and reporting on quality measures, trends in provider payment methods, public reporting of surgeons’ outcomes data, reducing hospital readmissions, and trends in physician attitudes on the changing landscape of physician practice.
