American Society of Anesthesiologists - Why Attend

Dear friends,

For the last few years, AQM™ has served as a world-class destination for all quality related topics. Whether you’re just getting your feet wet in the world of quality reporting, or have a firm grasp on the requirements and your role, there is something for everyone at the meeting.

As you’re aware, this year there have been numerous changes to quality reporting and measurement, with one huge factor at stake—payment reimbursement under MACRA. The new system successfully moves physician payment from volume to value—ensuring practitioners are rewarded for high quality care, not the amount of care provided. Although the new regulations seem complicated and daunting, it’s important to ensure quality reporting is underway to secure a positive payment adjustment. This presents a significant shift in the way quality and business is handled, but if you’re looking to learn more about tactics to bring back to your practice, you’re in the right place.

AQM™ will discuss a variety of topics to ensure you’re prepared for quality reporting. You’ll gain insight about reporting data, engaging in quality measures and assessing risk. You’ll also learn about several platforms available for data collection and quality reporting, including AQI’s NACOR® Quality Reporting and Quality Concierge™. Subject-matter experts will share their insights and strategies for reporting successfully, and there will also be networking opportunities, panel discussions and small group break-out sessions. AQM is truly a highly interactive and engaging meeting of the minds.

We have confidence that AQM will provide you the resources and solutions you need for a successful reporting year, while enabling you to meet with colleagues and experts who bring an air of comradery and positive outlook on the future of quality reporting. We look forward to seeing you!

All the best,

Jeffrey-Apfelbaum
