CMS Educational Opportunities- January


Please see below for Educational Opportunities from CMS for January:


The Philadelphia Regional Office of CMS will be hosting a new series of webinars in January to review activities that Medicare eligible providers will need to take in 2014 to earn incentives and avoid payment adjustments associated with the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), Value Modifier, and Stage 2 of the EHR Meaningful Use program.  We will also conduct a webinar on the topic of ICD-10.  To accommodate different work schedules and time zones, we have scheduled for each of the four topics to be covered on two different webinars per week: one on Tuesdays at 12:00 Noon EST and another on Thursdays at 6:00 PM EST.  The schedule is as follows:


  • Week of January 6: PQRS
  • Week of January 13: Value Modifier
  • Week of January 20: ICD-10
  • Week of January 27: Stage 2 Meaningful Use


This series of calls is intended for eligible professionals, practice managers, office staff, and all other interested parties who deal with the programs listed above.  We are asking that you register for these calls by clicking on the link to the corresponding date and time below for each topic of interest so that we can easily disseminate additional information via email if it is needed.  The dial in number and link to the webinar will be given upon registration.  If we maximize attendance on these calls, there may be additional calls scheduled soon. Please share this meeting invitation with partners, members, and colleagues who would benefit from this information.  Thank you, and best wishes for a happy and safe holiday.
