News to Know – Week of March 1

Upcoming events and important healthcare news for the week of March 1:

  • As healthcare systems have battled COVID-19, those working closest to the virus have been significantly impacted by employee burnout. With greater patient loads, provider shortages and unforeseen complications, many have reported decreased positivity about their medical careers. MHA endorsed business partner Medical Solutions has developed a whitepaper that explores the challenges facing healthcare systems and explains how strong workplace cultures can lead to better recruitment, retention, and employee satisfaction during the pandemic and beyond. For more information on the MHA Endorsed Business Partner program, contact Peter Schonfeld at the MHA
     
  • The MHA is coordinating two free educational webinars hosted by DataGen to review the Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) quality-based programs. The webinar offered from 1 to 2 p.m. March 3 will review the Medicare value-based purchasing program, and the webinar available from 1 to 2 p.m. March 10 will review the readmissions and hospital-acquired conditions reduction programs. There is no cost for members to participate in the webinars, but registration is required.
