CMS has contracted with Acumen, LLC to develop care episode and patient condition groups for use in cost measures to meet the requirements of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). As part of the development and maintenance processes, Acumen is seeking nominations from clinicians to participate in Clinical Subcommittees that will provide input on the development of chronic, procedural, and acute inpatient medical condition episode-based cost measures for potential use in the Quality Payment Program (QPP).
Wave 3 of the Clinical Subcommittees includes the following clinical areas: (1) Chronic Condition and Disease Management; (2) Dermatologic Disease Management; (3) General and Colorectal Surgery; and (4) Hospital Medicine.
Nominations close on April 12, 2019 at 11:59 PM ET. Clinicians interested in joining a Clinical Subcommittee for the first time may submit their nomination through this web-based nomination form. Subcommittee and workgroup members from Wave 2 who are interested in continuing their involvement should indicate interest in an abbreviated form shared directly via email. Subcommittee members who participated in Wave 1 but not Wave 2 should fill out the public nomination form to ensure Acumen has the most recent information. For more information, please see the nomination form or this CMS webpage.
