Medicare Quality Initiatives at 2013 ACR Imaging Informatics Summit

Meaningful Use in 2014 - Michael PetersI had the honor of presenting with Judy Burleson, Senior Advisor, Metrics in the American College of Radiology’s (ACR) Quality and Safety Department during the third annual ACR Imaging Informatics Summit & Data Registries Forum in Washington, DC. Our October 11 breakout session featured updates on Medicare quality initiatives and incentive programs, including the Physician Quality Reporting System, EHR Incentive Program, Value-based Purchasing, and more. The session was intended to provide a closer examination of each of the federal government initiatives mentioned in the keynote presentation, “Future of Registries – Alignment Across Quality Efforts,” by Louis H. Diamond, MBChB, FCP, (SA), FACP, FHIMSS (President, Quality in Health Care Advisory Group, LLC).

Ms. Burleson covered various complex subtopics in admirable detail inside of 40 minutes. My presentation was a simplified, ten-slide overview of the 2014 participation requirements for the Medicare version of the EHR Incentive Program (“meaningful use”) for eligible professionals.
