Webinar: Let’s Talk: Creating a common language for outcome measurement using 3M PPEs
To measure and improve key health outcomes, approximately two dozen government agencies, payers, providers, and researchers have relied on the 3M Potentially Preventable Event methodologies. Each methodology—hospital admissions, readmissions, emergency department visits, inpatient complications, and ancillary services—identifies costly services that would be unnecessary if effective care had been delivered from the outset. Each methodology also includes detailed logic to exclude non-preventable events and adjust for differences in patient case mix.
