Lunch and Learn: The Rhode Island Quality Reporting System

Thursday, October 7, 2021 from 12:30pm - 1:15pm

Our speaker will walk us through Rhode Island’s new state-wide Quality Reporting System, which will provide real time data on the health of Rhode Islanders to decision makers in government, health systems, and insurers as well as researchers.
