Podcast: MACRA and the Importance of Transforming Your Practice
The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) is an evolution of existing programs that physicians have been participating in over the last few years. It’s important for physicians to gain an understanding of the changes and apply them to their practices during 2017—the grace period before the full transition in 2018.
Listen to the podcast below to learn more. In under nine minutes, Adam Weinstein, MD, discusses how MACRA differs from previous payment incentive programs, the key components of the Merit-based Incentive Payment Systems (MIPs) and Alternative Payment Models (APMs), how physicians can prepare for the MACRA rollout, steps for practice transformation and the importance of incentivizing staff to report on the right data. He also helps to clarify common points of confusion related to MACRA.
