Pulse8 Presenting at upcoming RISE Star Ratings Master Class on Leveraging the Opportunities between Medicare Advantage 5-Star and MACRA

Value-Based Care is driving the future of our healthcare system and Quality Metrics are carrying progressively more weight. Quality ratings and rankings bear significant financial consequence for both Health Plans and Providers.

This year’s lineup of industry innovators includes Pulse8’s Kari Hadley, Senior Director of Medicaid and Quality Products, and Melissa Smith, Vice President of Stars and Quality Innovations at Gorman Health Group. Together, they will explain how to leverage the opportunities between Medicare Advantage 5-Star and MACRA on December 12, 2017 at 2:00 pm PT at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar in San Diego, California.

During this joint presentation, attendees will:


  • Get a better understanding of MACRA regulations;
  • Discuss how MACRA is impacting providers;
  • Learn how MACRA’s quality components affect MA 5-Star ratings; and
  • Explore ways that plans can support providers and align incentives to improve quality ratings.

“Value-Based Care is driving the future of our healthcare system and Quality Metrics are carrying progressively more weight. Quality ratings and rankings bear significant financial consequence for both Health Plans and Providers,” said Kari Hadley, Pulse8’s Senior Director of Medicaid and Quality Products. “Whether you are in the Medicare Advantage, Medicaid, or Commercial market or are a Medicare Fee For Service (FFS) Provider, you must find the synergies and commonalities among the quality metric systems and leverage partnerships for maximum performance. Next week, Melissa Smith and I will dive into how to do just that for both Medicare Advantage and Medicare FFS.”

Attendees will also have the opportunity to visit Pulse8’s booth to speak with Kari and other key members of the Pulse8 team. To schedule a meeting or demo, please email Scott Filiault at Scott.Filiault@Pulse8.com.
