Promoting organization’s Interoperability Program

Imagine you have been asked by your supervisor
to prepare a presentation for your co-workers to explain your organization’s
Promoting Interoperability Program (meaningful use). The presentation
should give an overview of what Interoperability Programs (IP) are and why they
are important for APRNs. You may see the terms MU and IP used interchangeably, but in
2018 CMS renamed MU to Interoperability Programs (IP).
Give
examples of what your organization must do to demonstrate program
requirements and what the consequences are if they fail to do so. Include
content on all proposed stages.
Identify
your target population (nurse practitioners) and describe what their role
might be (how does this affect them?) Include what MACRA
is. Also, tell your audience what MIPS and APM’s are and why
they are important.
Please
use slide speaker notes. This may include up to 3 charts or
tables maximum. The entire presentation should be more than 14 slides
but not over 20 slides.
Slides
should be in a minimum of 16 pt font with no more than 5-6 points/ideas
per page
You
must use at least 4 quality references. Include a reference slide at the
end of the presentation. References should be in APA 7thed
format.
Some info to read if needed.
