Successful Strategies for Implementing the CMS Psychiatric Core Measures

 No Charge

 These measure are important to both inpatient and outpatient providers

CMS has adopted six National Quality Forum (NQF) endorsed measures, developed by The Joint Commission, applicable to inpatient psychiatric care.  Performance in these Core Measures will be tied to hospitals reimbursement rates beginning Oct. 1, 2013. Outpatient providers can expect to need to utilize these results as they work to improve transitions, and serve people discharged from inpatient.

Join IBHI to hear from Nola Harrison, ACSW, LCSW of St. Anthony Hospital, a private nonprofit hospital located in Oklahoma City, and  Bob Moon, LMSW of The New York Health & Hospitals Corporation, the public hospital system in New York City, about their processes for implementation and lessons learned.  Find out what outpatient providers can expect to be transmitted upon discharge from inpatient facilities as best practices are implemented.

The program iwas open to all but registration was required.
