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 CQO Report
On Monday, AHRMM released the latest Cost, Quality, and Outcomes (CQO) Report: CQO and the Triple Aim: Supply Chain’s Strategic Connection. This report contains seven case studies on healthcare organizations that have successfully aligned their supply chains to the CQO Movement and the Triple Aim through initiatives such as supply and process standardization to reduce surgical site infections (SSIs), to logistical improvements aimed at delivering better patient care to the bedside and beyond.

The intention of this report is to share best practices and generate discussion around supply chain’s connection to these two key initiatives, thereby empowering healthcare supply chain professionals to improve the quality of patient care while driving greater efficiency and better financial outcomes for their organizations.
