The Health Care Quality and Cost Council will be holding a day-long retreat on Monday, June 30 at Worcester State College’s Student Center – Blue Lounge, 486 Chandler Street in Worcester (directions and campus map link -look for building 10).
The sessions will go from 9 am to 3 pm.
The agenda includes discussions of a theoretical framework linking cost reduction and quality improvements, evaluation of the Council’s success so far and opportunities and challenges for future efforts, a discussion of website and communications opportunities with outside experts, and establishing priorities and and agenda for the coming year.
The coming year will be critical for the Council, as it moves from its planning to its operational stages. The cost control legislation pending in the House may put more responsibilities on the Council as they work on their current priorities. Information on the Council is available on their website.
