Medicare Expert Will Detail Strategies for Improving Star Ratings in Feb. 20 Atlantic Information Services Webinar
Date:2/7/2013

Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 07, 2013

Achieving high Medicare star ratings has become a crucial strategy for any Medicare plan and its providers — and in today’s shifting landscape, these strategies must constantly evolve. Find out how to adjust stars strategies to succeed under current measures while building an organization that anticipates new ones on the horizon in “Medicare Star Ratings: Key Steps to Prepare for Changes in 2014 and 2015,” an upcoming Feb. 20 webinar sponsored by Atlantic Information Services, Inc.

With major revenue and competitive positioning at stake — including the possibility of losing Medicare contracts if organizations score fewer than three stars — MA and Part D plans must take every step possible to maximize performance in relation to these quality measures. Kristian J. Marquez, CFA, vice president of the Clinical & Quality Outcomes (C&QO) department at Inovalon, Inc., a leading health care technology solutions company, will offer reliable answers to questions like:

  • Which new measures — and changes to existing measures — will pose the biggest hurdle to Medicare plans?
  • How will the potential change to using percentage scores rather than stars in calculating summary and overall star ratings affect an organization’s score?
  • How high will organizations have to perform to hit four-star ratings on key measures such as cholesterol screening, controlling blood pressure, diabetes treatment and medication adherence in the cardiovascular and diabetes arenas?
  • What steps should organizations take to prepare for 2014 display measures that may be used in calculating star ratings in 2015?
  • Which three high-scoring ratings may CMS move to the display page, where they’ll be collected and monitored but will not be used in calculating star ratings?
  • What specific steps should plans take in provider contracting to prepare for CMS’s possible introduction of a measure on the use of highly rated hospitals?
  • What other measures are likely to be adopted in the future? How should plans begin preparing for them today?
