About this Episode

In early May, CMS released the inpatient prospective payment system proposed rule for fiscal year 2023. In this year’s proposal CMS introduced several policies aimed at addressing health equity. Among those is a data collection condition that would require a provider to attest that their organization is capturing SDOH measures.

Eric Fontana, Vice President of Client Solutions at Optum Life Sciences, has spent much of his career helping health care leaders make sense of data and regulations. In this special Open Mic edition of Radio Advisory, Eric shares his thoughts about why this could be a game-changer for researchers.
