Goal: Make it easier for you to use claims and clinical data to achieve your goals of reducing unnecessary costs while maintaining quality.
Through this module, participants will learn:
• Tactics for engaging clinicians in understanding where and why variations in practice exist
• How to conduct a Practice Pattern Variation Analysis (PPVA), including developing blueprints, using costs driver reports and utilization curves, and how and why the information gathered in each step is important
• Methods for facilitating discussion on PPVA findings with clinicians in a non-judgmental way
• Ways to determine community standards for practice and how to support this change, and how to sustain momentum
