ABC will be introducing its pioneering MACRA Made Easy platform which prepares our clients for the changes due to go into effect April 2017 with the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), as part of CMS’s Quality Payment Program.
Fee-for-service has been the traditional methodology for reimbursements, but as CMS transitions to a pay-for-performance methodology, it is easy to get lost in the acronyms and the policy. ABC’s MACRA Made Easy platform guides clients through the changes and provides a structured and practice-specific platform to ensure that a practice is not only protected from penalties, but puts itself in line for incentive payments. ABC has led the way with our proprietary Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) program and we will continue to provide that pathway to success for anesthesia and pain management providers.
Our over-arching platform is to guide our clients through the transition to the Quality Payment Program—MACRA Made Easy. The government’s change from a fee-for-service model to a pay-for-performance methodology requires providers to track and maintain standardized metrics on their quality performance. QCDR reporting offers the greatest level of flexibility and alignment with anesthesia practices and is the recommended approach for all providers to comply with these governmental quality requirements. ABC can help usher you into the future of healthcare with our new QCDR and our MACRA Made Easy platform walks you through the steps.
