WEBINAR MARCH 22 – NAVIGATING TELEHEALTH AS THE PANDEMIC MOVES TO ENDEMIC

As the pandemic becomes endemic, we’re looking toward the future of access to healthcare. Can you see Telemedicine being a permanent part of your practice? Did you know that some of the service codes we have been using may not be included in the permanent Medicare Telehealth services list? Did you know the demographic using telehealth audio/video technology is mostly women ages 25-40?

Join us for our upcoming telehealth webinar where our experts will discuss Medicare’s additions to the permanent telehealth list, how to navigate service codes that are not included in Medicare’s updated lists, what to expect from the state telehealth committee, and more.

WEBINAR MARCH 16 – QPP YEAR SIX: ELIGIBILITY


Now, early in the year, is the perfect time to begin reviewing your organization’s list of eligible clinicians in CMS’s Quality Payment Program. This is one of the first steps in preparation for a successful performance in the QPP. Join the Kentucky REC’s panel of knowledgeable advisors as they provide valuable programmatic details on the eligibility process for the QPP.

We will discuss eligibility criteria, MIPS determination periods, special statuses, participation information, reporting options, and how your eligibility can change throughout the year. We will show the various ways to check eligibility, and which area is definitive when finalizing which clinicians are required to submit. Also, learn how some clinicians may opt-in to the QPP to take advantage of their high-performing status within the program.

WEBINAR FEB 16 – QPP YEAR SIX: 2022 PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Each new year brings challenges and opportunities within the world of healthcare. The last several years have been unprecedented in the level of those challenges, with clinicians and healthcare workers willingly stepping into the gap to provide much needed care for some of our most fragile patients. At the Kentucky Regional Extension Center, we appreciate your dedication and commitment to the communities you serve.

2022 brings new regulatory changes and updates to CMS’s Quality Payment Program as well. From limiting bonus potential in the Quality performance category, to increased weighting and addition of 5 new Cost measures, to updates with Promoting Interoperability, and additional insights into the implementation of MIPS Value Pathways (that will soon be replacing Traditional MIPS), more change is on the horizon. Now, more than ever, is the time to optimize your Health Information Technology, gain understanding around your data, and streamline workflows and processes to maximize your performance potential and improve outcomes.

Join us for our next webinar where we will explore these programmatic challenges and how to turn them into opportunities for improvement when you partner with the expert advisors at the Kentucky Regional Extension Center.
