The AMA’s new customizable resource, the MIPS Action Plan, breaks down the complexity of the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) track of QPP into specific actionable steps. During the webinar, attendees will learn how to use this took to create and/or validate their strategies for MIPS implementation in 2017.

  • The Quality Improvement webinar will take place Wednesday, Nov. 29, from 1-2 pm. Root-cause analysis is a critical tool in the AMA’s quality improvement toolbox that allows professionals to understand what is at the heart of the problem of poor quality or performance, and then develop improvement ideas that can make a difference. In this one-hour webinar, PCPI Director of Quality Improvement Stephen L. Davidow will cover three common forms of root-cause analysis, discuss the advantages of applying these methods to different circumstances, and share how this type of analysis is being used as the basis for creating and implementing ideas that lead to robust improvement.
