Open Door Forum: Improving Care for Medicare Beneficiaries with ESRD

When: Tuesday, July 31, 2012  |  1:00pm – 3:00pm ET

 

CMS hosted this Open Door Forum to allow for individual input on ways the CMS Innovation Center can develop and evaluate new models of payment and service delivery to reduce program expenditures, while improving the quality of care for Medicare beneficiaries living with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD).

Information and perspective provided by patients, providers, caregivers, suppliers, payers and researchers could provide vital insight to inform the design of innovative models to reduce program expenditures, while improving the quality of care for these beneficiaries. In this Open Door Forum, we hope to hear from all interested stakeholders.  

On the call, CMS staff provided a brief introduction and then opened the phone lines for members of the public who wish to contribute to the dialogue concerning new payment and service delivery models to reduce program expenditures, while improving the quality of care for the ESRD population.
