High-quality patient care is a shared goal among health care professionals throughout our state and the Center for Health Care Quality (CHCQ) at the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). To reach this end, both CDPH and hospital staff continue to work together during difficult times with an eye to the future.

Join us as CHA hosts its annual meeting between members and CHCQ leaders on November 10. This is an opportunity for hospital staff to hear from the leadership of CDPH’s Center for Health Care Quality and connect with CDPH District Office leaders.

Similar to previous years, attendees will break out into meetings for Q & A with their CHCQ District Office representatives.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • COVID-19: Where we are going and what is ahead when the Public Health Emergency (PHE) ends?
    • MPX: What we are seeing at our hospitals and what is CDPH planning for?
    • CDPH’s plans for relicensing and recertification surveys.
