What if your largest payer announced today that your future funding will be based on certain quality measures? Well, it’s actually already happened. When its Emergency Triage, Treat and Transport (ET3) model goes live, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has indicated that participating ambulance services will be eligible for bonus payments based on quality. Some state Medicaid officials have also requested example quality measures that could be used for a supplemental payment program. And the Academy of International Mobile Healthcare Integration recently published clinical, operational and financial performance measures that have been shared with external stakeholders such as the International City/County Management Association, America’s Health Insurance Plans and the National Association of Counties.
Want to know how your agency’s key performance metrics compares to some of industry’s highest performing EMS systems? Wondering how to evaluate and report key quality metrics for your system and benchmark your measures over time? This session will take a deep dive into the results of these performance measures and provide participants with tools to generate, track, report, evaluate and improve quality metrics in your organization – all in an effort to help you prove value to payers.
As part of the session you will develop a custom take-home plan.
