CMS Conducting Listening Sessions on MIPS Program at HIMSS16

February 19, 2016


Are you a health care provider or hospital administrator who is attending HIMSS16? The Centers for Medicare & Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is eager to learn your thoughts on the future of the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) program.

CMS will host three one-hour Design Lean Planning Sessions during this year’s conference. Space is limited; please email CMSeHealthTeam@ketchum.com with your Name, Title, Role (e.g., provider, etc.), and Organization to register.

When:    Tuesday, March 1: 2:30-3:30pm PST
              Wednesday, March 2: 2:30-3:30pm PST
              Thursday, March 3: 11:30am-12:30pm PST
Where: CMS Meeting Room, Venetian Level 4, Zeno 4603 (floorplan)

Please join CMS program leaders for one of three Design Lean Planning Sessions during this year’s HIMSS Annual Conference in Las Vegas. These sessions will create an opportunity for providers and practice administrators, managers, and data analysts to contribute valuable feedback and help inform the future design of the MIPS program.

Use of Human Centered Design and Lean theories (Design Lean) in the MIPS operational development process will help streamline multiple programs within the MIPS program. This process allows CMS to proactively engage stakeholders and users; collect feedback before the system is designed; and potentially prevent future challenges.
