Improving Quality Patient Care

Additional Information

Medicare is changing!

Join us to learn about two Medicare programs designed to help you give your patients the best care possible.

The new Quality Payment Program improves Medicare by helping you focus on care quality and the one thing that matters most — making patients healthier. Presented by a Nurse Practitioner working for Delawareans at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, come hear how Nurse Practitioners can participate and report in this program the same way their physician colleagues do.

The Connected Care Initiative is an outreach program to inform professionals and consumers of the benefits of chronic care management services for individuals with chronic care needs and to encourage the participation of underserved rural populations and racial and ethnic minority populations.

Come learn about this initiative and how you can use a toolkit featuring innovations including the new CPT codes to provide chronic care management services to the 25.4 million Medicare beneficiaries with two or more chronic conditions. 

Get your patients the services they need and get the compensation available to nurse practitioners for previously unpaid services.

Come Meet our Regional CMS Representative (look, she’s an NP!)
