North Texas Healthcare Compliance Professional Association (NTHCPA) invites members and other interested health care compliance professionals to join other NTHCPA members and guests on Wednesday, September 21, 2011 from Noon to 2:00 p.m. as Timothy D. Martin, J.D., LL.M, CCP, MCP, leads a program on “Quality Measures and Reimbursement: New Programs, New Compliance Challenges.”  

The expanding use of payment incentives for meeting quality benchmarks by private and public payers create new opportunities and new compliance challenges.  The Affordable Care Act created a number of new quality incentive programs that build on earlier ones. Texas has also created new quality incentive programs with the passage of its healthcare collaborative initiative. While most health quality incentives continue to rely on structure, process, and outcome measures that the healthcare industry has experimented with for many years, new compliance requirements require providers to change their data-gathering and data-communication procedures. Further, these programs may force providers to deal with clinical guidelines that lag behind the standard of care and data-transmission protocols that lag behind reporting requirements. Newer bundled-payment methodologies may require healthcare organizations to create a complex contractual web to allocate a single payment among multiple providers. This discussion will focus on these issues and their possible solutions.

The meeting will be held at the offices of the Dallas Ft Worth Hospital Council, 250 Decker Drive, Irving, TX 75062-2706.  Under the new brown bag luncheon format, members and guests are encouraged to bring along a lunch of their choosing and participate in this compliance knowledge and skill-building and networking event.

He has more than 30 years’ experience in information technology—the last 20 years in healthcare information technology.
