Sea Girt NJ USA -- July 14, 2011: With CMS moving toward a value-based purchasing system effective October 2012, hospitals are struggling to improve their core measurement scores before their reimbursement levels are impacted.

During Healthcare Performance Improvement: Exceeding Core Measure Targets for Value-Based Reimbursement, Dr. Steve Berkowitz, president at SMB Health Consulting and former chief medical officer for the central and west Texas division of HCA at St. David's HealthCare, will share practical strategies for improving core measures, as well as modeling techniques to illustrate the impact of a hospital's failure to meet the measures. You will learn:

  • Strategies for improving healthcare performance through core measures and other quality indicators;
  • How to efficiently collect, track, report and share the data;
  • Staffing considerations, including how to get physician buy-in; and
  • Calculations and modeling techniques to show the cost and impact of missing a core measure target.
