What Does VBP Mean to CMS?  Transforming Medicare from a passive payer to an active purchaser of higher quality, more efficient health care  Tools and initiatives for promoting better quality, while avoiding unnecessary costs  Tools: measurement, payment incentives, public reporting, conditions of participation, coverage policy, QIO program  Initiatives: pay for reporting, pay for performance, gainsharing, competitive bidding, bundled payment, coverage decisions, direct provider support
  6. 6. Meaningful Use • “CMS is expected to publish a formal definition of meaningful use, for the purposes of receiving the Medicare and Medicaid incentive payments, by December 31, 2009.” • “Meaningful use of EHRs, we anticipate, will also enable providers to reduce the amount of time spent on duplicative paperwork and gain more time to spend with their patients throughout the day. • “Meaningful use, in the long-term, is when EHRs are used by health care providers to improve patient care, safety, and quality. A Message from Dr. David Blumenthal, National Coordinator for Health Information Technology www.T-M-Partners.net 6

  11. 11. Flash Poll Is there a CEO or Board Level mandate to improve Quality? Does this relate to Core Measure scores or your reporting process? www.T-M-Partners.net 11
  12. 12. CMS Compliance More important than ever before… • Cost of Compliance • Quality Reporting Cost of • State Reporting (HB 197) Compliance • ARRA and Meaningful Use • CMS Core Measure Reporting Process • Over 100 Required reports of clinical quality • Abstraction From Many Sources • Manual Data = Error • Time & Cost of Each Report www.T-M-Partners.net 12

  15. 15. Its Not Just sending data The tracking and reporting of Core Measure performance is a huge amount of work which occupies multiple clinical staff members “This is another unfunded mandate” and • Data is 3 months old • Vendors don’t help with abstraction • No Reuse of Quality Data • Multiple Reports = Multiple Abstractions Data does NOT improve Quality www.T-M-Partners.net 15
  16. 16. The Cost of Core Measure Data CMS Core Measure Reporting data is very valuable and cost a lot to obtain • The Patient Impact of bad quality is already felt • The Cost of Fixing the problem already spent • The Cost to abstract the information is required • The Cost of waiting for CMS reports is frustrating What are you doing with this Core Measure Quality Data? www.T-M-Partners.net 16
