IHANY Monthly Newsletter – May, 2021

  1. Schedule your patients for their Annual Wellness Visits (AWV):
    For 2021 CMS has determined that you can utilize telehealth to do an AWV. REMINDER: You can also do advance care planning (ACP) via telehealth and/or during an AWV. See the Population Health News section later in this notice for 2021 Medicare telehealth code updates.
  2. 2020 Shared Savings Program Reporting is over but 2021 Education has begun:
    In preparation for next year’s GPRO/Promoting Interoperability (PI) reporting we will begin holding monthly educational sessions to discuss best practices, lessons learned and the “why” around the Quality Measures for the Shared Savings Program and resources for Promoting Interoperability (PI). CMS released their 2021 Promoting Interoperability Guide, please review and let us know if you have any questions. You will also find the meeting information for our second session under the Education section later in this notice. You can expect a meeting invite from Brian following this notice. Each session will be recorded for future reference.
  3. Reports:
    We will be sending out Population Health Analytic Reports on a monthly basis. With this new process we are targeting the first Wednesday of every month. Please ensure that you have disseminated these reports to the appropriate colleagues so they may take action on the updated data (i.e.. providers, care coordinators, front end staff). If you have any questions please let us know.
