Healthcare Surge: Graduate Medical Education (GME) Transfer Checklist Mobile App
Should hospital infrastructure changes occur as a result of a healthcare surge, causing medical students and residents to transfer midyear, the Graduate Medical Education (GME) funding attached to those students and residents should be reallocated to the host hospitals accepting those students and residents.
How does it work?
Hospitals can use the Healthcare Surge: Graduate Medical Education (GME) Transfer Checklist mobile app to implement the Graduate Medical Education Reallocation Guidelines. This checklist was put together from reference material developed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services following Hurricane Katrina. Academic hospitals should review and understand the CMS interim final rule to understand how host hospitals – those taking on displaced residents – could receive payment for training additional residents displaced by a healthcare surge. Use the GME transfer checklist to help guide you through the payment transfer following the collapse of a program or facility.
