The healthcare industry is ever-evolving, and making sure a whole system’s approach is applied and barriers to care are addressed are critical to delivering the best care possible. That’s why we were thrilled to join other leaders, innovators and health equity champions at the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Innovation Summit in Orlando.
Our presence at the NCQA Innovation Summit was marked by a vibrant booth at the heart of the trade show floor. From the moment the doors opened, our team was inundated with attendees eager to learn more about our cutting-edge solutions. It was incredible to see such enthusiasm and curiosity about the at-home testing innovations we’ve been working on and the high-adherence that we are seeing, and we were grateful for the opportunity to engage with so many passionate healthcare professionals who are committed to reducing the burden of chronic diseases, and chronic kidney disease (CKD) in particular.
One of the highlights of our experience at the NCQA Innovation Summit was the caliber of questions we received and conversations that we had with attendees. These were not just inquiries; they were insightful and demonstrated a deep understanding of the barriers, challenges and opportunities in the healthcare industry. Day to day challenges plans and health systems face like integration, user compliance, low awareness, and of course health disparities, fueled discussions and allowed us to gain new perspectives, exchange ideas, and forge connections with industry peers. Topics like value-based care, telehealth, patient engagement, RAF and total cost of care were all discussed throughout the event. It was clear that everyone at the summit was committed to improving healthcare quality, and we were inspired by their long term dedication and commitment to making a positive impact.
We also appreciated hearing insights from leaders and equity experts such as Joseph Betancourt, who detailed the different decades that shaped health care in the United States, and of course, the candid talk with Jon Blum, CMS’s Deputy Administrator, who shared the organization’s vision to a more inclusive national health system and priorities for better access in general and rural areas specifically, after the covid pandemic.
The NCQA Innovation Summit provided a unique platform for healthcare leaders to come together and drive healthcare forward. We felt a strong mission-driven approach among attendees, all working for a common goal: improving healthcare quality and patient outcomes for all.
We look forward to future opportunities to engage with the industry and continue our mission of advancing healthcare quality. Thank you to the NCQA for organizing the summit and thank you to all the attendees who made it a very enriching experience.
