Better Evidence. Better Decisions. Better Health: e-Clinical Quality Measures

An Academy Health Webinar

HITEQ Center 0 519

Electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) provide an opportunity to objectively evaluate care practices and set goals to improve value-based care. Daniella Meeker, Ph.D., the Director of Research Informatics at the University of Southern California, will present the goals and findings from her collaborative project “Distributed Networks for Electronic Quality Measure Development and Evaluation,” including a demonstration of the Research Network software, which she and her team have developed. Dr. Meeker will address ways the research and measure development communities can work together to develop new measures that are potentially more efficient, valid and useful, and can also support a more sustainable infrastructure for measure development and research.

The Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) in the Quality Payment Program

CMS on the MACRA Proposed Rule and MIPS

HITEQ Center 0 505

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) changes the way Medicare rewards clinicians for providing quality care by streamlining multiple quality programs into a new Quality Payment Program tied to Part B Fee-For-Service payments. With the implementation of MACRA and the replacement of the Sustainable Growth Rate, we will pay clinicians participating in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System or Advanced Alternative Payment Models of the Quality Payment Program beginning in 2019. This listening session is an opportunity for stakeholders to provide CMS early feedback on proposed policy for the Quality Payment Program. We encourage participants to review the proposed rule (CMS-5517-P) prior to the listening session.
