During the April 9 webinar, participants will learn directly from CMS Region 9 Chief Medical Officer, Betsy L. Thompson, M.D., about the major quality reporting and e-health incentive programs currently underway for eligible professionals. The session will cover the basics of the Physician Quality Reporting System, the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Records Incentive Programs, the Medicare E-Prescribing Incentive Program and the new value-based payment modifier. The content will be geared toward physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants and what they need to know, although other health care professionals and medical office staff are welcome to attend.
Each of these programs has specific deadlines and reporting requirements, some of which are overlapping, and are not always simple to understand. CMA's webinar will give physicians the information they need to successfully participate in each program. During the webinar, Dr. Thompson will help participants understand which programs they are eligible for, the associated incentives and penalties for each program, and the deadlines and requirements for participation.
