The Washington-based Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is seeking interested public and private sectors to join the agency as cosponsors of a conference that will be held October 6-7, 2008 in Boston to educate physicians and other stakeholders about a newly enacted federal program of incentive payments designed to encourage the use of electronic prescribing.
CMS says interested parties can submit proposals detailing how they can support CMS, in a non-fiduciary relationship, by developing conference content, identifying speakers, and implementing outreach activities to educate affected provider, business, and consumer stakeholders about this new program.
The agency will invite selected organizations that meet the evaluation criteria to enter into formal, non-fiduciary cosponsor agreements to consult on the conference program content, speaker selection, and outreach strategies, in addition to other tasks as described in individual cosponsor agreements, it says.
The notice may be viewed at http://federalregister.gov/page2.aspx and proposals to cosponsor the educational conference must be submitted by 5 p.m. EDT on August 15, 2008.
