It’s a Hybrid World: Why Not Hybrid Quality Measures?

Wednesday, May 5, 2021 at 1:00 PM ET

Hybrid measures are not new. In fact, NCQA has been using hybrid measures for quite some time as part of HEDIS reporting. There is renewed interest in this term now that CMS has finalized to replace the existing “claims only” Hospital-Wide 30-Day Readmission measure with the hybrid version of the measure in the IQR program and publicly report data by 2023.

In this webinar Medisolv CEO, Dr. Zahid Butt, will provide an overview of the “hybrid measure” concept and its application and use cases in accountability programs.

In this webinar we will address:
- Foundational principles of the hybrid measure concept.
- Different flavors of applying this concept using the CMS Hybrid Hospital-Wide 30-Day Readmission measure and the NCQA HEDIS hybrid measures as examples.
- Key points for quality leaders to more effectively manage these hybrid measures in their organizations.

Transitioning from CMS Web Interface in QPP/MIPS Quality Reporting

Wednesday, May 19, 2021 at 1:00 PM ET

CMS Web Interface (CWI) is one of many options available to large provider groups and a requirement for MSSP ACO quality reporting under the QPP/MIPS program. In its most recent final rule CMS announced elimination of this reporting method starting with the calendar year 2022 performance period. Large groups reporting under this method and MSSP ACO’s need to plan now and use this transition year to implement alternative quality reporting solutions in order to be fully prepared at the start of the new year.

Achieving high quality measures performance scores are necessary for success in value-based payment programs such as QPP/MIPS.

This timely webinar will review the many changes and challenges facing organizations transitioning from CWI to another submission method. Information to assist with a smooth transition will be provided.

In this webinar we will:
- Explain the timeline and ramifications of sunsetting the CMS Web Interface submission method and its impact on both large group practice CWI reporters and MSSP ACO’s.
- Best alternatives for large groups including measure selection equivalent to the CWI measure set.
- Introduce the APM Performance Pathway (APP) framework and explain the who, what and how for the new framework with its impact on MSSP ACO level quality reporting.
- Implementation and compliance recommendations in the new reporting options for a successful 2022 reporting year
