3M Quality Webinar

Using potentially preventable events to identify waste in health care

Nov. 18 and 19, 2020


As the U.S. health care system continues along the path to value, identifying potentially preventable events is key to highlighting opportunity areas. For example, when the observed rate of readmissions exceeds the expected rate based on the illness burden of the patient, there may be opportunities to improve outcomes. Identification of such events relies on high documentation integrity. In this webinar, attendees will learn:

  • How the connection between accurate documentation and risk adjustment of performance metrics can improve outcomes
  • How to use 3M’s suite of potentially preventable events (PPEs) (standard performance metrics used in many states) to track outcomes
  • Examples of how the PPE methodologies identify variation and opportunities for improvement

Because we anticipate a high volume of registrations, we are offering two sessions (please note that the same content will be presented in each session).

Here are ways you can review the content of this webinar:
