Meeting the PI Patient Engagement Objective
Beginning in 2019, Medicaid Promoting Interoperability (PI) Program participants must meet updated Stage 3 objectives and measures. Join us for a webinar that will cover Objective 6, which calls for coordination of care through patient engagement. Sam Ross, CHITREC Health Informatics Facilitator, will discuss previous program requirements for patients to view, download or transmit health information, and send secure messages to patients. He’ll also cover new Stage 3 updates that introduce a third measure for patients generating health data from non-clinical settings. Attendees of this webinar will learn:
- Patient engagement measure definitions and terms
- Measure specifications
- Strategies for increasing patient engagement
A Q&A session will follow the presentation.
