Upcoming ABCs of the QPP
By Jim Tate - One of my favorite books is The Big Short by Michael Lewis. It was eventually made into a movie by the same name and gives a clear view of the housing bubble that burst 10 years ago and pushed the US economy into the Great Recession. What fascinates me was the ability of some to predict, and profit, from knowing when the collapse would occur.
By William Hersh MD - Another couple of studies have been published documenting the amount of time physicians spend with computers in primary care and ophthalmology clinics.
By Art Gross - While mobile devices play a major role in how we stay connected to the world in our personal lives, they are also becoming increasingly popular in our work environments. Not only are mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops convenient in the workplace, but they can also help increase productivity.
CMS is streamlining the Medicare attestation process by migrating the meaningful use attestation system from the Medicare & Medicaid EHR Incentive Program Registration and Attestation System to the QualityNet Secure Portal.
By Dr. Pawan Jindal - A significant addition to the scoring component in 2018 is the “Improvement Scoring” bonus points for the Quality and the Cost categories. As the name suggests, these are bonus points available in 2018.
By Matthew Fusan - CMS released the much anticipated 2018 Quality Payment Program final rule. While most of what was in the proposed rule ultimately made it into the final rule there was one surprise along with many indicators of what to expect as the QPP continues to mature over the next several years.
By William Hyman - The premise of Artificial Intelligence is that a properly constructed computer program can produce useful conclusions, and make recommendations, when presented with a fact set for a particular case (ie facts pertaining to a particular patient).
