The Medicare Access and Chip Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) is one of the most significant pieces of healthcare-related federal legislation that we have seen in at least a decade. It holds enormous transformative potential for payment reform efforts, but it is also complex to understand and put into practice.

The Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement’s Navigating Payment Reform series provides Practice Transformation Networks (PTNs) and their providers with information on MACRA requirements and national and regional perspectives for succeeding in value-based payment environments through the Quality Payment Program (QPP) established under MACRA .

In the fourth module in this series, Elizabeth Mitchell, President and CEO of NRHI and Co-chair of the Physician Focused Payment Model Technical Advisory Committee will provide an overview of the current landscape and discuss what providers should be doing now to succeed in the future. Mitchell will be joined by Joan Orr, PTN Program Director, Maine Quality Counts (Northern New England PTN) and Tiffany Mattingly, Director, Clinical Quality Improvement, The Health Collaborative (Cincinnati) to share how these organizations are working with providers and their communities in preparation not only for the 2017 Merit-based Incentive Payment Systems (MIPS) reporting year, but also for long-standing success with alternative payment models (APMs).

Learning objectives for this module include:

  • Understand the current healthcare landscape as it relates to alternative payment models
  • Understand the importance of preparing providers to do more than ‘check the boxes’ for MIPS now
  • Learn tips and strategies for helping providers prepare for the future
  • Hear voices from the field perspectives on preparing providers for long-term success, including a focus on specialty practices

This module is appropriate for PTNs, SANs, Quality Improvement Advisors, practice staff, clinicians, and others focusing on continuous, data-driven quality improvement and sustainable business operations.
