Hospital Value Based Purchasing National Provider Call

Tuesday, February 28, 2012
1:30 PM - 3:00 PM Eastern Time

Registration is no longer available for this event.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will host a national provider call with question and answer session on Hospital Value-Based Purchasing (Hospital VBP). CMS will create hospital-specific performance reports that simulate the FY 2013 Program for each hospital to review. The simulated reports will employ hospital data from prior years to construct each hospital’s baseline period and performance period scores. To prepare providers for interpreting the simulated report, the National Provider Call will discuss a sample report that shows what hospitals can expect when they receive their own reports.

The Simulated Hospital VBP Program reports will feature:
The hospital's estimated incentive payment percentage, based on the baseline and performance periods noted
The hospital's Total Performance Score and a comparison to national and state Total Performance Scores
The hospital's scores for the Clinical Process of Care domain and the Patient Experience of Care domain
The hospital's individual Clinical Process measure performance and scores
The hospital's individual Patient Experience dimension performance and scores
The hospital's individual Patient Experience domain consistency score
Detailed explanations of every section of the simulated report
