CMS continues the expansion of pay-for-performance (P4P) programs in the 2015 IPPS final rule. By 2017, performance under these metrics will impact up to 6% of the hospital’s traditional Medicare reimbursement.


The 90-minute webcast “2015 IPPS Final Rule: Focus on Quality Measures” is designed to heighten awareness at acute care hospitals of the impact that documentation and coding has on CMS P4P measures, and to foster engagement of clinical documentation improvement (CDI) programs in organizational improvement efforts. Many measures in these programs—such as PSI #90, risk-adjusted mortality, risk-adjusted readmissions, risk-adjusted complications, and spending per beneficiary—are derived from ICD-9-CM codes submitted on claims. CDI programs possess the expertise and tools to assess and improve impactful documentation and code assignment for these measures.
