About PTAC: Where We've Been and Where We're Going

The May 2015 PASRR webinar "About PTAC: Where We've Been and Where We're Going" will occurr on Tuesday, May 12th, at 1 PM EST (10 AM PST).

The webinar was presented by Ed Kako, Director of the PASRR Technical Assistance Center.

A PDF copy of the slides can be found at the bottom of this page, along with the transcript of the Q&As covered during the webinar.

Synopsis of the Topic:

In late 2009, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) created the PASRR Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), to help states improve their PASRR programs, and to help CMS acquire better knowledge about how state PASRR programs operate. In the roughly five years it has operated, PTAC has developed two arms: a technical assistance arm, and a research arm. The goal of this presentation will be to review PTAC's accomplishments in these areas; to explain how all of these efforts are fundamentally connected; and to preview the goals that PTAC hopes to accomplish over the next few years. The webinar will also ask states to contribute what they would like to see PTAC do in the future.
