The MACRA Playbook: Kentucky

How is MACRA playing out in regions throughout the country? And what emerging practices might be applicable to your community? 

Our next big event – The MACRA Playbook: Kentucky – is in Louisville on September 1. Kentuckiana Health Collaborative is convening employers, providers, plans and consumers to discuss MACRA within a regional lens. Elizabeth Mitchell (NRHI), Sanne Magnan (formerly with ICSI) and Dr. Mai Pham (CMS) will speak at the event. For more information and to register visit the Kentuckiana Healthcare Collaborative.

We will keep you posted on our websites, and as in-person and virtual events continue to roll out. For more information on events and the MACRA Playbook, contact Dianne Hasselman at


The MACRA 201 Series is designed as a next step up from the 101 MACRA session hosted in May 2016. For each of the 5 key areas that we set forth, APMs/MIPs, Data Sharing, Measures and Measurement, New Care Models, and Technical Assistance, the series will offer a focused conversation that gets a bit deeper and more actionable.

On Thursday, July 28th, NRHI hosted “MACRA 201”, a HealthDoers collaborative learning event with a focus on Data Sharing. David Kendrick (MD, MPH) of MyHealth Access Network, a leader in the field, anchored an interactive discussion that delved into critical ways in which data sharing will facilitate MACRA implementation–or, if not harnessed properly, could impede it. Participants took away practical tools and insights into their work as well as a heightened awareness of unknowns that need ongoing attention. You can watch the discussion by clicking the video to the right.

Voices from the Field

During the July 2016 MACRA Peer to Peer Seminar, NRHI talked with different stakeholders about where they and their organizations are in terms of understanding and implementing MACRA, and what they would find most helpful if they could ask anything of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

“Voices From the Field” offers, in their own words, valuable insights and a snapshot of where different regions stand with the new rules.

Our Mission

The Mission of the Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement is to improve health and healthcare in communities across the U.S. through the active and engaged network of our member Regional Health Improvement Collaboratives.

Regional Health Improvement Collaborative

The Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement (NRHI) is a national organization of more than thirty-five member regional health improvement collaboratives (RHICs) across the United States. These multi-stakeholder organizations are working in their regions and collaborating across regions to transform the healthcare delivery system to improve the patient experience of care, including quality and satisfaction; improve the health of populations; and reduce the per-capita cost of healthcare.



What is NRHI?
The Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement


NRHI Knows MACRA represents our commitment to the stakeholders and communities we represent. As MACRA implementation moves forward, we remain committed to providing the most relevant, most comprehensive – and above all else, most objective information available on the Law, the Rules, and their effects on healthcare stakeholders and the broader healthcare community.
