An Update on CMS Quality Programs:
Pharmacists Can Shine in New Era of Patient Outcomes and Efficiency


The Affordable Care Act officially launched the CMS Value-based Purchasing Program and Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program, both of which are now entering year three. The Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) is designed to stimulate development of new ACO care delivery models, which focus on cost reduction while enforcing quality of care measures.

In this webinar, Steve Riddle, PharmD, BCPS, FASHP:

  • Improves understanding of the new elements emerging from the CMS Value-based Purchasing Plan that focus on outcomes and cost efficiencies
  • Reviews how programs such as the MSSP are structured with regard to quality and cost goals
  • Demonstrates the cross-linking and increasing harmonization of quality programs and measures across
    government programs
  • Identifies opportunities for pharmacy/pharmacists to take leadership roles around these programs
