Posted on Friday, December 1, 2017 5:59 PM
On Thursday, CMS released a list of 32 reporting measures under consideration for Medicare’s quality reporting and value based purchasing programs. This is much smaller number then last year when they recommended almost 100 measures. “The move is in line CMS Administrator Seema Verma's focus on reducing regulatory burden for providers.
