Accreditation Readiness: Sustaining Performance between NCQA Surveys

Sustaining and improving performance between NCQA surveys enable Health Plans to perform their best by reducing rework, preventing timeline bottlenecks, and controlling staff burnout. This interactive live course was designed in response to health plan requests for strategies and best practices for managing team, processes, and changes between NCQA surveys. 
Faculty for this session has over 25 years of experience in NCQA Accreditation Survey operations. To optimize the learning experience, this course is a blended open forum for discussions, lecture and live Q&A. The short activities will assist in simulating these strategies and best practices. A demo of our Interactive Review Tool (IRT) will ensure your ability to upload your survey documents correctly and efficiently. This course is appropriate for any health plan staff member, delegate, or contractor with a stake in NCQA Accreditation.
