Recently, The Joint Commission (TJC) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced their commitment in driving the next decade of health equity for people who are underserved. The commitment to advancing health equity will help foster a healthcare system that benefits all for generations to come. These new requirements include the expansion of collection, reporting and analysis of standardized data. Hospitals and health systems must be prepared to understand and report these new requirements to continue to receive reimbursement from the CMS.
The MHA Health Foundation webinar Prepare for The Joint Commission and CMS Health Equity Requirements will:
- Describe the new health equity-related reporting requirements to stay compliant with TJC and the CMS.
- Demonstrate how you can assess hospital readiness to meet the new requirements.
- Outline sources for data, including hospital community health needs assessments, for health equity reporting.
- Describe how to assess and analyze your patients’ social risk factors and how these needs evolve over time.
The webinar is scheduled from 11 a.m. to noon, Nov. 15 and MHA-member hospitals can register for an unlimited number of connections per hospital/entity for $200.
Members with questions should contact Erica Leyko at the MHA.
