QPP YEAR 6 WEBINAR MAY 19: OPTIMIZING PROMOTING INTEROPERABILITY

As your KY REC advisors partner with you and your practice to define your organizational goals for 2022 and beyond, it is critical to understand the impacts of programmatic changes to the Merit Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Promoting Interoperability Category for 2022 and future program years. There is so much new for the PI category this year. We will discuss the 2022 MIPS PI category requirements, review options for Bi-directional HIE engagement and new requirements of SAFER guides and public health measures. We will provide team-based interventions in order to be successful in these performance based objectives.

For program year 2022, there are required public health measures that you need to act on in order to be prepared for the attestation season. Additionally, we will explain the SAFER guides and how they complement but do not replace your required security risk analysis. Join us for these important updates!

QPP YEAR 6 WEBINAR APRIL 20: OPTIMIZING QUALITY REPORTING

As we settle into springtime in Kentucky, we see trees budding and flowers blooming. It’s a fresh new start to the annual cycle of growth all around us. At the Kentucky REC, our next webinar is focused on just that topic – growth. How can you best grow and prepare for the future of value-based healthcare to keep your organization healthy and sustainable?

As your KY REC advisors partner with you and your practice to define your organizational goals for 2022 and beyond, it is critical to understand the impacts of programmatic updates to the Merit Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Quality Category for 2022 and future program years. Many quality flexibilities and bonuses that were provided to ECs and Groups in previous performance years, have been removed for this performance year and moving forward. Anticipating and mitigating the removal of this buffer will be crucial to meet objectives for future success. During this webinar we will explore the Quality Performance Category, focusing on scoring updates, benchmarking, measure selection, and a step-by step exploration of performance optimization.

WEBINAR MAY 25 – IMPORTANT HIPAA SECURITY SAFEGUARDS FOR CYBERATTACK DEFENSE

The number of healthcare data breaches reported in 2021 was record-breaking. Cyber-criminals continue to up their game at accessing and exfiltrating electronically protected health information. The HIPAA Security Rule sets forth safeguards that all covered entities must implement. Adopting these safeguards is a key factor for decreasing the likelihood of a cyberattack leading to a data breach and protecting your organization from an unfavorable outcome if ever audited or investigated.
