NEQCA Annual Forum Attracts Over 500 Physicians and Clinical Staff Members

November 30, 2017

The 2017 NEQCA Annual Forum, held on October 19, brought together more than 500 physicians and their administrators, clinical and office staffs. This year’s Forum was designed to encourage our network affiliates to meet and network with members outside of their own LCOs, create connections with Tufts Medical Center specialists, educate participants about timely policy and public health issues, and increase awareness of NEQCA’s clinical program offerings. 71% of event survey respondents were satisfied or highly satisfied with the Forum, and 92% said that based on their experience this year, they would plan to attend a similar event in future years. The following individuals and organizations received awards at the Forum:

  • PediSouth LCO, LLC – LCO Quality Performance Award for Pediatric Medicine
  • Healthcare South, PC – LCO Quality Performance Award for Adult Medicine
  • Highland Healthcare Associates IPA – Leadership in Innovation Award for Pediatric Medicine
  • Carla Destramp – Leadership in Innovation Award for Adult Medicine
  • Luis Valles, MD – Clinical Leadership and Engagement Award for Pediatric Medicine
