Providers are facing a rapidly changing healthcare system. With the passage of MACRA (the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015), the federal government and the broader healthcare delivery system is moving from the fee-for-service payment model to one focused on value and patient outcomes. So clinicians get reimbursed based on quality outcomes instead of the quantity of tests, procedures and visits they provide. The goal is to improve the quality of outcomes and patient experience while reducing costs.
Although your organization may be worried about whether you’ll get a bonus or penalty in your Medicare Part B payment or you may be worried about submitting data to the Quality Payment Program– you really need to build a sustainable framework to succeed under the new healthcare economy.
The goal is to provide quality care and value for patients while reducing costs—something that everyone wants. But the transition to a new performance and payment model can be daunting.
