AMGA releases comments about ACO proposed rules for Medicare’s Shared Savings Program The American Medical Group Association , a professional association representing multispecialty medical groups and other organized systems of care, today released its comments on proposed regulations for Medicare’s Shared Savings Program, popularly known as Accountable Care Agencies . The much-anticipated proposal from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Providers was released on April 7, 2011 and the public remarks period concludes today. While AMGA fully helps the accountable care concept, it found the guideline wanting in many ways and offered suggestions by which to strengthen it. ‘We acknowledge and applaud CMS because of its noteworthy actions in providing information about ACOs by broadly inviting responses and suggestions, holding national conference calls, making very much information readily available on its website, and dispatching senior CMS officials to talk to stakeholders and interested celebrations,’ said Donald W.ASGE is certainly delighted to become recognizing these 27 endoscopy units, whose staff work hard every full time to provide high-quality care to their patients in a safe environment, said Bret T. Petersen, MD, FASGE, chair, ASGE Quality Assurance in Endoscopy Committee. There continues to be an exceptional response to this program. We are proud to acknowledge these ASGE people through our Endoscopy Device Recognition Program for his or her dedication to promoting the best standards of basic safety and quality. A significant component of the scheduled program is an educational course that thoroughly testimonials related guidelines.
