Product Description

Quality Payment Program - Pathways and Potential Options for Clinicians during 2017 and Beyond

On October 14, 2016, CMS published the final rule that outlines its implementation of MACRA value-based payment reform starting in 2017. The new framework is called the Quality Payment Program (QPP). In 2017, clinicians and health care leaders must develop strategies to position their organizations for financial success under the new Quality Payment Program.

Beginning in 2017, CMS will start rewarding clinicians for delivering high-quality patient care through one of the two pathways: (1) payment of incentives for participation in Advanced Alternative Payment Models (Advanced APMs); or (2) application of a positive or negative adjustment pursuant to the clinician's performance under the new Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). CMS will also provide flexibility to clinicians by allowing them to pick their pace of participation. Through three flexible options to submit data under MIPS and a fourth option to join an Advanced APMs, CMS will not trigger a negative payment adjustment in 2019.

This webinar by expert speaker Joseph Wolfe will focus on the Quality Payment Program (QPP), its pathways and potential options for clinicians as they work around the QPP during the 2017 transition year and beyond. In this session, Joseph will provide an overview of QPP, including its MIPS and advanced APM pathways. He will help clinicians and healthcare leaders navigate through this transition year and the years that follow, by providing a practical, straight-forward understanding of the key provisions and options available for them
