How will your hospital’s quality stack up? Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently released a proposed rule on value-based purchasing. These regulations are designed to reward value, outcomes and innovations instead of merely volume. This free webinar will help participants understand the proposed value-based purchasing program and related changes in Medicare reimbursement as well as how CMS intends to measure a hospital’s quality.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the overall value-based purchase program, along with who the program affects and the potential impact on a hospital’s Medicare reimbursement
