To improve care and create transparency, Medicare mandated a pay-for-quality reporting program for hospital outpatient services in 2009. The measures can impact hospital payment if not met, thus creating financial incentives for hospitals to achieve them. The measures are intended to evaluate the regularity of outpatient treatments known to provide the best results for the most patients with a particular condition. 

During the next live edition of Talk-Ten-Tuesdays, Colleen Deighan, senior consultant with 3M, will outline the Hospital Outpatient Quality Reporting program and the three new measures adopted as part of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) 2022 Outpatient Prospective Payment System/Ambulatory Surgical Center (OPPS/ASC) Final Rule.
