Anatomy & Physiology of CMS Pay-for-Performance
Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) pay-for-performance programs impact all acute care hospitals in the United States. Several programs directly impact the supply chain, including value-based purchasing, readmissions reduction, and the hospital acquired conditions penalty programs. Join AHRMM for this upcoming webinar to decipher each of these program’s structure, measures, and specific payment connections through Federal Fiscal Year 2018 and proposed future changes.

New AHRMM Webcast
AHRMM Webcasts are a free and quick resource for individuals interested in hearing more on relevant healthcare supply chain topics. Two new webcasts are now available and AHRMM will continue to launch additional webcasts throughout 2016.
Continuing from Tubing Misconnections Part 1, the latest AHRMM webcast updates supply chain professionals on the design and timing of the new small bore tubing connectors making their way into hospitals. Supply chain professionals across the country must be aware and take the necessary steps to begin transitioning universal connectors to the new unique enteral, and then unique neuraxial small bore connectors.
