QPP 2024 Webinar April 16: Data Completeness & Validation Processes

QPP 2024 Webinar: DATA COMPLETENESS & VALIDATION PROCESSES FOR QUALITY MEASURE OPTIMIZATION*
Tuesday APRIL 16, 2024 @ 12PM ET

CMS finalized several significant changes in the 2024 PFS Final Rule affecting eligible clinicians and groups reporting to the Quality Payment Program. One of those updates was the increase of the data completeness threshold from 70% to 75% effective beginning with the 2024 performance year.

This change, coupled with the challenges to maximize performance across all four performance categories to avoid negative payment adjustments, reinforces the importance of ensuring your data is accurate, reliable, and complete. This webinar will help you understand how to verify that your data is being captured correctly, learn the principles behind and importance of data validation, and how optimizing your reporting is the foundation of quality improvement.
