The ABCs of VBP: The Latest on Value-Based Payment Programs
March 25, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Look for PointRight Senior Healthcare Specialist Jennifer Gross’s presentation for Massachusetts Senior Care (MSCA) this month.
The shift in policy by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) from “volume to value” has led in recent years to a proliferation of Value-Based Payment (VBP) programs, both at the federal and state level. This webinar will discuss the basic framework of a VBP program, the performance measurement used, and the methods for determining incentive payments. We will review the current federal VBP programs, including the recent COVID-19 VBP program, and discuss how CMS has been using these incentive programs to address issues in post-acute care.
- Identify the key components of a Value-Based Payment (VBP) program
- Explain how the VBP framework applies to various VBP programs
- Apply strategies to manage quality outcomes and track improvement in key VBP metrics
