QUEST 2020

With CMS’s value-based purchasing program, healthcare providers are reimbursed based on the quality of care, not just the quantity of services you provide to patients. It has become more important than ever to:

  • Translate new and complex legislative implications
  • Avoid Medicare cuts and earn bonus payments from the value-based purchasing program
  • Adopt new operating capabilities, integrate data, and implement a quality management infrastructure to help them transition to more value-based models

Premier has built a legacy of helping member health systems succeed in meeting their performance improvement challenges under value-based purchasing. Over eight years, QUEST members have been able to avoid 176,000 patient deaths while saving $15 billion. The national impact of QUEST has been recognized by the National Quality Forum and The Joint Commission as a recipient of the John M. Eisenberg Patient Safety & Quality Award.

QUEST® 2020 presents a redesigned collaborative environment of networks to engage your health system at any stage of your improvement journey. With expanded measures extending beyond the walls of the hospital and a robust curriculum, QUEST 2020 pairs data-driven decision making with performance improvement tools to rapidly transform healthcare within your community

Participants leverage quality and safety data management analytics to drive performance improvement across six priority areas:

  • Prevention & Treatment
