Value Based Purchasing Webinar
Dates: March 7, 2017 - 11 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Registration Deadline: March 01, 2017
This is the first webinar in this two-part series is designed to help you better understand Medicare’s Value Base Purchasing Program, and the impact on a hospital’s revenue.
Three Medicare quality-based pay-for-performance programs are now impacting hospital inpatient payments. In federal fiscal year (FFY) 2017, six percent (6%) of Medicare inpatient fee for service (FFS) payments will be in jeopardy due to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) mandated value-based purchasing (VBP) program, readmissions reduction program, and hospital acquired condition (HAC) reduction program.
HAP is hosting a two-part educational webinar program to better understand Medicare’s quality-based payment reforms. The webinars will be conducted by HAP’s data analytics partner, DataGen. Datagen is a subsidiary of the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS) and contracts with 47 state hospital associations and 8 multi-state health systems to research and analyze the financial impact of regulatory and legislative changes on Medicare reimbursement to hospitals and health systems.
This is the first webinar in this two-part series is designed to help you better understand Medicare’s Value Base Purchasing Program, and the impact on a hospital’s revenue. This webinar will help providers gain an in-depth comprehension of the impact of new Medicare payment policies related to the value-based purchasing (VBP) program, the readmissions reduction program, and the hospital-acquired condition (HAC) reduction program. Understanding the components of these policies and their impact will help you and your staff prioritize appropriate interventions.
Make plans to attend this learning session to ensure that your hospital is doing everything it can to improve its chances for success. This is especially important since the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is constantly redefining these programs.
At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Overview of Medicare’s Value Based Purchasing Program
- PA’s VBP Reports
