QUALITY REPORTING: 2018 AND BEYOND, IN PARTNERSHIP WITH NAHQ

Tying payments to performance across quality and cost dimensions requires robust measurement and reporting. Hospitals and providers, however, are demanding relief from regulatory burdens including quality reporting. What gives?

In response to both internal needs and external pressures, CMS continues to propose dramatic changes in its Quality Reporting programs. While this session will primarily focus on these hospital and ambulatory changes for quality reporting in 2018, future reporting trends and lessons applicable across the continuum of care will also be discussed. In addition, we’ll share some strategies that will help you to better manage multiple measure types for the major regulatory reporting programs.

Objectives

  • Review 2018 reporting requirements and discuss future trends in quality reporting. 
  • Gain insight into what quality reporting is likely to look like beyond 2018. 
  • Learn strategies to help you stay on top of the complex and changing reporting requirements year after year.
