Beckwith appointed to the National Quality Forum’s Care Coordination Standing Committee

Samira K. Beckwith, president and CEO of Hope Healthcare, has been appointed to the National Quality Forum’s Care Coordination Standing Committee.

A non-profit, independent organization, NQF leads national collaboration to improve health and health care quality through measurement and innovation. Beckwith joins national health care experts on the Care Coordination Standing Committee to review performance measures focused on patient experience, health information technology and transitions of care.

“Communication between clinicians and providers is essential when patients transition between care settings,” said Beckwith. “By standardizing measures utilized to assess quality of care coordination, health care providers will be better able to serve patients and their families.”
