From the CV Transforum agenda:

On December 20, 2016, CMS published the final rule, Advancing Care through Episode Payment Models and Cardiac Rehabilitation Incentive Model. CMS’ stated goals of this rule is to improve quality of care in the applicable episodes, while reducing episode spending through financial accountability.

This intensive, small group boot camp session will allow for depth of discussion and very detailed information sharing on everything you need to know about the final rule. We will provide expert clinical, financial and legal education so you can learn how to benefit from it whether in a chosen MSA or not. This essential boot camp will hit all of the important components of this new rule and the implications to AMI and CABG episodes. Our expert policy, legal and consulting panel will bring valuable insights around the complexities of the rule and discuss how to leverage it while improving the quality of care you provide.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Final Rule Summary
  • Review of the MedAxiom EPM Data
  • Clinical Needs Inside Bundles (pathways, standardization)
  • Infrastructure & Alignment Requirements (governance, leadership, physician comp)
  • Importance of Coding & Documentation
  • Legal Update (acceptable gain sharing arrangements)
  • Q&A

Whether you are in a chosen MSA or not, and regardless of what the new administration does, EPMs and value-based medicine is the inevitable future of health care. Stay ahead of the curve and be prepared for the future by participating in this essential bundled payment educational event.
