Webinar: Quality-Based Payment Reform


11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Medicare 101 Series

Part 2 of this 3-part series will focus on Medicare’s quality-based payment reform. The Affordable Care Act called for the implementation of a quality-driven payment system for the Medicare inpatient program. Hospitals have seen their reimbursement impacted by the value-based payment program, Readmissions Reduction program and payment implications of hospital-acquired conditions. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has expanded quality-based payment reforms across other payment systems—outpatient, physician, skilled nursing, inpatient rehab and home health. 

Learning objectives

  • Explore the components of these quality-based payment reforms and what changes are on the horizon
  • Look at the measures adopted under these programs, how they are developed, and how care under the continuum (care provided both before and after admission by other health care providers) impacts a hospital’s quality metrics
