Healthcare executives to CMS: Stop micromanaging quality
from MedPage Today
Medicare would work a lot better if the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services would stop micromanaging quality measurement, a healthcare executive said recently. "I would love for the administration to recognize that they need to stay 'high-level,'" Dr. Richard Gilfillan, president and CEO of Trinity Health, a Livonia, Michigan-based healthcare network serving patients in 21 states, said at a briefing on the future of Medicare sponsored by the Alliance for Health Reform. "Thirty-two quality metrics for accountable care organizations to meet is too much — we should have five to seven patient-reported functional status outcomes."
