What You Need to Know About Patient Reported Outcome Measures

Webinar Date: 
Thursday, April 20, 2017 -
11:00am to 12:00pm

**This webinar is coordinated and hosted by the Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement (NRHI).

Passed in April 2015, MACRA is one of the most significant pieces of healthcare-related federal legislation that we've seen in at least a decade. It holds enormous transformative potential for payment reform efforts, but it's also complex to understand and put into practice. 

The Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement's Navigating Payment Reform series will provide Practice Transformation Networks and their providers with information on Quality Payment Program (QPP) requirements and national and regional perspectives for succeeding in value based-payment environments.

In the third module in this series, Tina Frontera from Minnesota Community Measurement (MNCM) will help you plan for adopting Patient Reported Outcomes (PRO) Measures and will provide insights on choosing PRO Measures for MIPS reporting and preparing your practices for short and long-term success with these measures.

Learning objectives for this module include:

  • Understanding the importance of clinics moving from process to outcome measures
  • Understanding how to plan for getting MIPS credit for PRO Measures
  • Hearing lessons learned from MNCM about implementing PRO Measures
  • Learning about PRO measures for which MNCM is the measure steward and how these measures can be adopted in practice
    • Depression Care
    • Asthma Control
    • Total Knee Replacement

This module is appropriate for clinics and others involved in planning clinic-based measures (consultants, Data Analysts, IT Programmers, etc.), providers, and PTN staff focusing on continuous, data-driven quality improvement and sustainable business operations.
