Pinnacle EMS Precon: How Do You Compare? Quality Metrics in the Age of ET3
August 10, 2021 | 8:00—11:45 AM MST
What if your largest payer announced today that your future funding will be based on certain quality measures? Well, it’s actually already happened. Under Emergency Triage, Treat and Transport (ET3) model, 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.
