Upcoming PHA Provider Engagement Webinar

The Well-Informed Onsite Clinic Customer's Opportunity to Unleash Market Forces on Healthcare

David Claud, MD, PhD
Organizations spend too much on healthcare that too often does little for its members. Quality and cost improvement in healthcare is occurring too slowly. Onsite clinics provide a useful mechanism for healthcare purchasers to more effectively use their purchasing power to improve healthcare, but they must be able to differentiate quality.
In this PHA Webinar, participants will learn:
  • A practical, working definition of Quality Healthcare that customers and providers can use to evaluate quality of healthcare.
  • How markets respond to information asymmetry between the customer and the supplier, and how to reduce this asymmetry.
  • Fundamental aspects of healthcare quality that are not readily evaluated by standard healthcare quality measures.
Dr David Claud founded BenefitsDoc to help organizations evaluate and improve the performance of their onsite health clinic team so their members can receive the highest quality of care.

Member Showcase Webinar: Healthcare’s New Diagnosis: Poverty (Z59.5) A Standard of Care to Treat the Social Determinants of Health

Marcella Wilson, PhD
More than a decade ago, Dr. Marcella Wilson took over a failing charity, and recognized two frequently opposing paradigms for addressing poverty: everyone had good intentions, but a “character flaw” mentality infused their efforts. Unlike other public health challenges, there was lack of a “science of poverty.” Join us for a joint presentation with Drs. Wilson, Osmick, and Kaminski about the evolving science of poverty, and how that knowledge can be applied to address poverty as a core social determinant of health to strive for healthier populations.
This webinar was presented in partnership between PHA's Member Showcase Webinar Series and the Jefferson College of Population Health's PopTalk Series, register below!
