March 18th - California Quality Collaborative Healthcare Symposium

Coming March 18th!

CQC is pleased to present a half-day discussion and interactive event focused on the intersection of social determinants of health (SDOH) and quality improvement. Dr. Rishi Manchanda, Medical Director and physician keynotes this event, setting the stage as to the definition, role and importance of SDOH. Next, a healthcare leader from an integrated health system in Northern California will speak about a project in using data to address SDOH. Then, Dr. Manchanda will illustrate the connection between quality improvement and SDOH, presenting available tools, resources and databases for audience members to take away practical application.

Megan O’Brien, MA from Health Outreach Partners will then address how to form and foster collaborative partnerships among multiple stakeholders – including clinics, health plans and medical groups.

Join us for this forward-thinking event meant to stimulate conversation, provide a primer in topic at hand and inspire attendees with an array of conceptual and practical information.
