TH8 | Managing Quality Reporting in PA/LTC Medicine: Strategies for Selecting, Capturing, and Reporting Quality Metrics in Your Practice

Quality measures are the largest determinant of your 'value' under all Medicare/Medicaid programs. Beginning with 2017, they determine how all physicians, APNs, and PAs are 'rated'. Those ratings follow you across all employment settings. Understanding how to manage your quality scores is becoming professionally critical. Each practitioner can be enrolled in multiple programs with different reporting requirements. You'll learn about managing quality for different audiences, reporting for regulatory purposes (CMS), and how to improve shared-patient care. This program is designed for clinical and administrative leaders with responsibility for quality reporting and quality strategies.

Learning Objectives:
(1) Select a menu of MIPS Quality Measures that are likely to yield better scores in 2018.
(2) Describe the design of the quality metrics through the APM model, and how to participate.
(3) Discuss how do practices contribute to I-SNP quality?
(4) Identify how AMDA members can redefine PAC and LTC quality that's appropriate for patients, the practitioner, partners, and payors.
