Session ID: 

From Evidence to Encounter: Accelerating Clinical Quality

11:30am - 12:30pm Thursday, March 12
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
Hall E - Booth 8300 - Education Theater


VA has been engaging in an open community-of-practice around the applied use of formal expression languages, called Business Process Modeling Plus (BPM+), to document care pathways in a way that makes them easier to consume, validate compliance, and implement across sites of care.  This session will discuss how existing paper-based pathways can be adapted, allowing for improved care within VA and more effective care transitions between VA and external partners, such as community care providers. This will help mitigate inherent risks and gaps in care that might occur across care transitions, improve overall VA compliance with established industry clinical best practices, and position VA to adopt new care pathways more effectively and rapidly.
