Finance/Quality-Related Programs


GNYHA provides member support for CMS’ quality-related programs and resources for other quality-related initiatives. CMS has established multiple quality-related programs, including hospital value-based purchasing (VBP), hospital readmissions reduction, hospital-acquired conditions (HAC) reduction, and inpatient quality reporting programs. Additionally, several national organizations have established quality measurement programs, including The Leapfrog Group, Consumer Reports, and US News & World Report. GNYHA provides members with resources to interpret and manage the multitude of quality measures, scoring methodologies, and quality reports.

To help members prepare for the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), GNYHA and its national affiliate Premier have partnered to create an online library of MACRA resources, including fact sheets, webinars, and other educational materials.
