This webinar will share the story of nutritional challenges health care systems face and how Advocate Health Care developed a provider-supplier partnership that addressed malnutrition care management inside and outside hospitals.

Elements of the collaborative malnutrition research design and the key clinical economic baseline and results will be shared and attendees will learn how the quality improvement program components drove care process improvement.

Register to learn how Advocate defined supplier segmentation and developed a key set of behavior expectations. Specific examples of suppliers who fall into these segments will be provided to show how partnership value and behaviors are being exhibited today in driving better CQO utility.

Finally, a vision of what a supplier-provider shared value scorecard might look like in the future, as well as key lessons learned thus far in advancing these relationships will be shared.

How this Session Relates to the Cost, Quality and Outcomes (CQO) Movement:CQO effectiveness can be increased by advancing supplier partnership models aimed at deepening collaborative, strategic or integrated relationships.
