How IT Leaders Can Reduce Reporting Burden, Boost Incentives

12:00pm - 1:00pm Thursday, March 8
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Galileo 904

Description

Providers must satisfy requirements in multiple CMS regulatory programs, such as the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System, Meaningful Use, and Inpatient Quality Reporting programs. Healthcare organizations face stiff penalties and reductions in their reimbursements if they do not report successfully. At the same time, high performance enables organizations to potentially earn incentive dollars. This session provides a framework and actionable insights to operationalize an IT-driven quality reporting strategy. The speakers will facilitate a discussion about successful strategies to reduce reporting burden and maximize CMS incentives. This would include a focus on the need for collaborate and cooperation among all disciplines within the organization (Finance, IT and Clinical Operations). It would also incorporate a collaborative strategy approach among internal and external stakeholders across the continuum of healthcare providers (hospitals, practices, PAC providers etc.).

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe quality reporting requirements, and alignment opportunity among other CMS quality reporting programs
  • Identify how to reduce quality reporting burden and optimize IT capabilities
  • Discuss the evolving role of IT in quality reporting strategy
  • Formulate a sustainable framework for a coordinated, IT-driven quality reporting initiative
