QPP 2024 Webinar: INTERPRETING CMS’S COST PERFORMANCE FEEDBACK*
Tuesday JUNE 25, 2024 @ 12PM ET

The Cost Performance Category is one of the most challenging areas of CMS’s Quality Payment Program. Knowing where to start is half the battle, even though CMS provides beneficiary-level reports, as well as scoring details based on claims submissions from prior years.

In a program where every point matters, you will learn how to use your feedback report, and interventions your practice can implement to optimize your performance.

Whether you need a refresher, or you are taking the first steps toward better understanding this category, our June 25 webinar will give you tools to address this difficult category.

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.
