While there is a great deal of uncertainly around the future of the Affordable Care Act, the 2015 MACRA legislation (also known as the “SGR fix”) was passed by Congress with bipartisan support – meaning, in all likelihood, it’s here to stay. MACRA’s quality and performance reporting requirements kick in this year, with physicians seeing a positive, neutral, or negative impact on their bottom line in 2019. The good news? Succeeding with MACRA may not be as hard as you think. Optimizing your performance by choosing the right measures for your practice now means getting ahead of the curve, and staying there.
Please join us for a live interactive video presentation on MACRA and what it means for your practice. During this presentation, Dr. Jerry Williamson and Carrie Nixon of Healthcare Solutions Connection along with Scott Disch of Privia Health will provide an overview of MACRA (including reporting requirements under the Merit-based Incentive Payment System, or MIPS) and discuss why 2017 presents an opportunity for physicians to position their practice for long-term success.
The live presentation covers:
• What does MACRA mean for you?
• MACRA’s Alphabet Soup: QPP, MIPS, APMs and more
• MIPS measures: What tools do you already have in place?
• Pick Your Pace: Taking advantage of the 2017 “Transition Year”
• Developing a long-term MACRA strategy
