The following program content was provided by the speaker.


Medicare has developed and implemented a number of “pay-for-performance” programs affecting health care payments, both in the hospital and ambulatory setting. These programs require us to focus on the value of the care we provide — how can we provide better care with lower cost?


After attending this webinar, participants will be able to accomplish the following:

  • describe components of value-based purchasing and payment programs
  • identify current Medicare pay-for-performance programs in the hospital and ambulatory setting
  • locate key program reference materials
