“QURE is excited to join a company that is so aligned with our mission to raise the quality of healthcare, standardize practice and lower costs by changing clinician behavior,” says Dr. John Peabody, the founder and president of QURE. “Measuring and reducing care variation using CPV® vignettes is QURE’s core business. We have demonstrated in the peer-review literature that we can do this from the ambulatory to the intensive care setting and for diseases ranging from angina to zoonoses, all with the goal to eliminate unwarranted variation, raise quality for patients and lower costs for payers.”
TRC Healthcare regards QURE as another key addition to its recent acquisition of NetCE, an industry leading continuing education platform that educates nurses, physicians, and mental health professionals. Together, QURE and NetCE fortify the evidence-based healthcare solutions TRC offers, “The addition of QURE increases our link between strong education and better patient outcomes,” remarked Wes Crews.
Dr. Peabody will continue to serve as QURE’s President and will take on the additional role of Chief Medical Officer at TRC Healthcare. Dr. Peabody is a renowned international health care figure in clinical care quality and a professor at the University of California, San Francisco and Los Angeles. In 2012, John started QURE Healthcare. The QURE platform – CPV® vignettes – has grown and become a widely adopted standard for measuring clinical practice. QURE CPVs are used by organizations looking to engage their providers in clinical variation reduction efforts, including large health care systems, independent practice associations, public and private payers, governments, non-governmental associations, and intergovernmental organizations. Dr. Peabody has contributed more than 200 articles, books, and abstracts to the peer-review literature, served on blue ribbon committees, testified before congress and advised heads of state on a wide variety of subjects notably quality improvement and the economic benefits of standardizing practice in healthcare systems.
“QURE is an extraordinary company, with a validated product and team and an incredibly passionate community of users,” said Wes Crews. “Together we can transform the way we engage providers and change patient care.”
