Clinical Quality Leadership Forum

Chair: Don Rebhun, MD, Optum-CA

The APG Clinical Quality Leadership (CQL) Forum is comprised of APG members representing c-suite executives, medical directors, and senior leaders with different roles on the health care team. The CQL Forum is charged with the following duties:

  1. Oversee the content and weighting of APG’s annual Standards of Excellence™ coordinated care survey. Evaluate scoring distribution and recommend threshold points to the APG Board of Directors.
  2. Discuss topics of clinical interest relating to the quadruple aim and physician group quality performance improvement efforts.
  3. Serve as a clinical leadership forum to address the changing relationships, emerging markets, and challenges of health care reform.

APG’s CQL Forum meets in person at least twice yearly (Annual Spring Conference and Annual Fall Conference) to discuss actionable solutions for challenging topics in the changing landscape of national health care. The forum uses its expertise to advocate with specific health care stakeholders to support clinically meaningful processes and outcomes through coordinated care. The forum also serves as an educational resource for APG members on topics around innovation and technology, population health management, value-based contracts, and social determinants of health.

Membership in the CQL Forum is open to APG members. For more information about joining the forum, please contact Susan Huang, MD, APG Chief Medical Officer.
