[Special Edition] Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Hospital Quality Measurement Programs

CMS's Hospital Quality Measurement and Value programs have shaped the hospital field and given patients information to inform their care for over 15 years. But a once in a lifetime pandemic has had a profound impact on how those programs operate. On today's podcast, we'll discuss what happened with these critical programs during the pandemic and where CMS can go from here. Joining this [Special Edition] podcast to discuss is Akin Demehin, Senior Director of Quality and Patient Safety Policy with AHA. This podcast was recorded live at the AHA Annual Meeting.
