HHS has created a summit to gather health industry stakeholders and government leaders to discuss how its current quality programs can be streamlined and improved.

HHS Quality Summit participants are expected to discuss how HHS quality programs can be evaluated, adapted and streamlined to drive the transition to value-based care.

HHS quality programs include those within CMS, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, CDC, the Health Resources and Services Administration and the Indian Health Service.

Eric Hargan, HHS deputy secretary, and Peter Pronovost, MD, PhD, and chief clinical transformation officer at Cleveland-based University Hospitals, will co-chair the summit.

HHS is currently accepting nominations for summit participant through July 31.
