On October 14, 2010, CMS is hosting a Special Open Door Forum on its ACA-mandated report to Congress on Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) Value Based Purchasing. The purpose of the call is to receive comments from ASCs, hospitals, physicians, physician associations, consumer groups, and others interested in the development of CMS’s plan for implementing value-based purchasing in ASCs. CMS is particularly interested in stakeholder input on: the development of measures of quality and efficiency; reporting, collection, and validation of quality data; the structure of value-based payment adjustments; and methods for public disclosure of the information.
