Quality Symposium: Meeting Performance Thresholds in a MIPS/Payment for Value World

Sunday, February 19, 2017 | 8:00am - 4:30pm

Cost: $335

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act escalates CMS's efforts to move the traditional fee-for-service reimbursement model to a payment-for-value one via the Quality Payment Program (QPP). Explore the quality reporting and performance thresholds for the QPP, and uncover proven strategies for leveraging health IT to risk-adjust and more effectively treat patients and manage chronic conditions to meet CMS performance thresholds.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify compliance requirements for reporting EHR-generated quality data and meeting performance thresholds for the CMS Quality Payment, Inpatient Quality Reporting, and Value-Based Purchasing Programs
  • Outline how to improve care quality and outcomes through the use of IT-enabled process improvement in order to meet QPP performance thresholds
  • Discuss how to develop health IT-enabled workflows to improve care quality and outcomes in order to meet CMS inpatient quality and value-based purchasing requirements
