The Blog to Transform Advanced Care
Advancing Care through Innovation, Observation and Collaboration.
The Advanced Care Transformation Index, a tool developed by the Coalition to Transform Advanced Care (C-TAC), evaluates the quality of advanced care using 37 evidence-based measures. It allows healthcare leaders to track progress towards improving care at the state-level, and eventually determine the changes needed for care improvement. Currently, Arizona is leading the way in a national initiative that will measure advanced care quality in every state and create a roadmap of best practices.
On this webinar, representatives from the Coalition to Transform Advanced Care, Arizona Hospital and Healthcare Association and the Arizona End-of-Life Care Partnership shared an overview of the Arizona partnership, discuss the purpose and use of the ACT Index, and highlight how the focused measures will help advance care for those with serious illness in Arizona.
