MACRA is a game-changer, and it’s here to stay. Medicare’s former system for paying providers, PQRS, was a “pay for reporting” program, but MACRA’s Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) is a “pay for performance” program. The government rules surrounding MIPS are confusing, and it doesn’t help to have a consultant paraphrase them for you.
As a healthcare delivery organization, your first and foremost focus is on healthcare, not on regulations or EHR technology. The key difference between this boot camp and any number of other events on the same subject is that we have turned the subject of MIPS inside out and upside down to present it to you from a hands-on, practical point of view, in terms of what you need to do right now to succeed. We will educate you on how MIPS scores your practice for quality, which measures to select and what reporting options to rely on. Our team’s expertise combines the three domains of healthcare, regulations and EHR technology, with the goal of guiding you to success as you embark on your practice’s MIPS journey.
Accountable care organizations (ACOs) and other Advanced Alternative Payment Model (APM) entities are an alternative approach to MIPS, and we will walk you through the pros and cons of participating in these alternative payment models as well.
