CMS webinar Friday on proposing quality measures for consideration

May 1, 2014

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will host a May 2 webinar for health care providers and others interested in recommending new quality measures for its quality reporting and pay-for-performance programs. The agency this month begins accepting recommendations for measures to include on its annual list of Measures Under Consideration for CMS quality programs. Under the Affordable Care Act, CMS must deliver an MUC list to the multi-stakeholder Measure Applications Partnership each year by Dec. 1 for input in advance of formal rulemaking. Originally planned for April 28 but rescheduled, the webinar will review how to submit recommendations for the MUC list and the deadlines for submission. To access the one-hour webinar at 11:30 a.m. ET, click here and dial 877-267-1577. The meeting number for the call is 990 969 730. Attendance is limited to the first 1,000 registrants. Organizations with multiple participants are asked to share a phone line when possible.
