Value Based Payments: APMS

Credits: 0.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits

Category: OnDemand

Often times, physicians and other clinicians find themselves reporting different quality measures depending on the entity they are reporting to. In many cases, the measures aren’t aligned among the payers or other entities, often resulting in complexity and confusion for the reporting providers. To address these problems, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), commercial plans, Medicare and Medicaid managed care plans, purchasers, physicians and other care provider organizations, and consumers worked together through the Core Quality Measures Collaborative to identify core sets of quality measures that payers have committed to using for reporting. CMS believes that by reducing burden on providers and focusing quality improvement on key areas across payers, quality of care can be improved for patients more effectively and efficiently. This webinar series will be an overview of the continued importance of quality of care and navigating value based payment systems. As physician payment shifts from volume to value, it is important to understand patterns of participation and predictors of success and failure to provide better support to practices.
