Change Agent Chat – Brigham and Women’s Hospital
September 8, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm
Organizations across the nation break down barriers firmly entrenched in our health care system. With boundless passion and limited resources, they increase access to care, implement innovative ways to deliver high quality care at affordable prices, and, day in and day out, fight to keep Americans healthy.
During these chats, we will highlight one of these Change Agents and the exciting work they are doing to create a better health system for us all.
Brigham and Women’s Hospital
Located in Boston, Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) is a major teaching facility affiliated with Harvard University. Researchers at BWH are estimating the occurrence, treatment, and cost of skin cancer in the United States. CO APCD data is being combined with data from other APCDs and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Analysis of the data will indicate the economic impact of skin cancer, determine any care and outcome disparities between regions, and identify possible trends in prevalence and treatment.
Find out what BWH’s researchers have discovered about skin cancer in Colorado and how outcomes across the state stack up with the rest of the nation.
