Here's what you'll learn:
• Explain what a hybrid measure is and how it's calculated
• Review the steps to implement the hybrid measure 
• Provide an overview of the hybrid measure requirements for the CMS IQR program

Transitioning from CMS Web Interface in QPP/MIPS Quality Reporting

Wednesday, March 10, 2021 | 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.
• Review 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.
• Share implementation and compliance recommendations in the new reporting options for a successful 2022 reporting year.

Understanding the Differences Between Stroke Measure Sets

Wednesday, March 17, 2021 | 1:00 PM ET

Stroke kills hundreds of thousands of people each year and is the leading cause of serious, long-term disability. The ultimate outcome of a stroke patient depends in large part on how they are cared for from the moment stroke onset is known. Of course, this is why organizations like The Joint Commission and the American Heart Association have created certifications that focus on improving the quality of stroke care. But these varying certification requirements are difficult to keep straight.

In this webinar, we will review:
• the differences between five major stroke measure sets:
  o STK
  o STK-OP
  o OP-STK
  o CSTK
• the measures included in each measure set
• the 4 different Stroke Certification Programs that are available
• the Measure Steward responsible for each measure set
• the way in which the data should be captured and reported to each program
