Implementation of the Annual Wellness Visit to Improve MIPS Scores
August 22, 2019
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM
Over the past three decades, various federal administrations have approached changes in the fee for service episodic health care delivery system. However, there has not been success as measured by persistent changes, lowered cost curve or relative improvement in life expectancy compared to other developed nations. Tools that promote patient centeredness can result in care that is more appropriate and of higher value. This session will explain how the implementation of tools can support efficient care delivery at high value.
