CMS Webinar October 25: Clinical Quality Measures for Small Practices

I just received an email invitation from CMS to an upcoming webinar on Tuesday, 10/25, from 1:00 – 2:30 pm. I’ve copied/pasted the details and Registration link below:

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is holding a second webinar on clinical quality measures (CQMs) and their importance in attesting to meaningful use for the Medicare EHR Incentive Program. CMS hopes to help small-practice and rural providers become more knowledgeable in the topics below:

  • An overview of the CQMs
  • How to report CQMs during attestation
  • Why CQMs are included in the EHR Incentive Programs
  • Answers to many FAQs on the CQMs and the EHR Incentive Programs
  • Although small-practice providers are the intended audience of this webinar, anyone will be able to join.

    Handouts of the webinar presentation, a document with over 300 questions-and-answers from the webinar held on August 30, and an informational CQM fact sheet will be provided to participants before the webinar. Additionally, registrants will be given an opportunity to submit questions before the webinar that will be answered by CMS subject matter experts and posted to the CMS EHR website a few weeks after the webinar has been completed.

    Individuals can register online for the webinar. After successfully registering, they will be sent a confirmation message with a link to the webinar site. Space is limited, so interested participants should register now to secure their place.

    If you are able to listen to the webinar, please come back to this AmericanEHR blog post and let us know what you thought about the presentation/discussion.

      Why are all these webinars held in the middle of the day? How can any working clinician ever attend these? Or it the idea – to prevent us from attending? Perhaps you could talk those that schedule these meetings and make them understand that those of us that have to work for a living cannot sit on a call at 1pm on a weekday.
