Advance care planning (ACP) helps ensure patient treatment preferences are documented, regularly updated and respected. This helps make the case that patients are getting what they want at end of life. ACP can start with a conversation and documentation of patient preferences during a Medicare Annual Wellness Visit. This implementation guide breaks down ACP and will help your practice create and refine your processes to support it.

Comagine Health’s analytic team has compiled COVID-19 heat maps displaying the number of Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries with three or more chronic conditions and total bed counts per county. The data includes two analyses using public sources, Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) and Oregon Data Collaborative data (All Payer All Claims Data), covering 80% of all Oregonians. This information should be used as a conversation starter in communities at most risk and can be used to help communities understand the location of populations at risk of severe illness with SARS-CoV-2 infection, and where those concentrations of at-risk beneficiaries are in relation to available hospital beds.
White paper that describes the foundational aspects of data reporting, lays out a step-by-step process for identifying errors that contribute to report inaccuracy and provides tools to help with the process of validating your own clinical quality reports.
