Quality Improvement through Value-Based Payments, Quality Reporting and the Physician Feedback Reporting Program
TMF Health Quality Institute, in conjunction with CMS, is seeking to promote higher quality of care and more efficient health care for all Medicare beneficiaries. This effort is supported by providing technical assistance on the implementation of quality measures, value-based payment and quality reporting programs including Inpatient, Psychiatric Facilities (IPFs), PPS-exempt Cancer Hospitals (PCHs), inpatient and outpatient departments of hospitals, physicians, and Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASCs).
According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the United States spends a larger share of its gross domestic product on health care than any other major industrialized country. With the advent of value-based payment and quality reporting programs, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is encouraging eligible physicians, physician groups and certain hospitals and health care settings to promote higher-quality and more efficient care for beneficiaries at a lower overall cost.
Beginning in 2017, the Quality Payment Program (QPP) is now in effect. Join the Quality Payment Program network to keep up to date and receive assistance. You can submit a Request for Support to receive technical assistance with the QPP.
