Slide notes:CMS updated the 2016 Quality Strategy, which was released in November, 2015. [quote] CMSs goal is to shift Medicare payments from volume to valuetying 30 percent of traditional Medicare payments to alternative payment models and tying 85 percent of all traditional Medicare payments to quality or value all by the end of 2016. [quote] These goals will drive a health care provider system that delivers improved care, spends health care dollars more wisely, and makes our communities healthier. Clearly, health care providers must be at the top of their game for supporting this new quality strategy. [quote] The 2016 CMS Quality Strategy goals reflect the six priorities set out in the NQS and identify quality-focused objectives that CMS can drive or enable to further these goals: Goal 1: Make care safer by reducing harm caused in the delivery of care. Goal 2: Strengthen person and family engagement as partners in care. Goal 3: Promote effective communication and coordination of care. Goal 4: Promote effective prevention and treatment of chronic disease. Goal 5: Work with communities to promote best practices of healthy living. Goal 6: Make care affordable. [end quote] 21
