(V3-01) Measuring Quality in Telehealth and Remote Patient Monitoring Encounters: Planning for MACRA and MIPS

Sunday, April 23
1:45 PM - 2:04 PM
Location: W230 BC

Establishing quantifiable metrics of quality in a technology driven environment remains challenging. Quality approaches often focus on establishing and reporting ratios to assess effectiveness of programs. This session will evaluate current and emerging policy issues arising from the implementation of MACRA and MIPS. Attendees will understand historical challenges associated with measuring the influence of technology based interventions in reported outcomes, including Telehealth, remote patient monitoring, and patient generated health data. A framework will be presented for consideration in future policy making efforts surrounding the implementation of quality measures specific to the technology oriented aspects of clinical practice improvement activities.
