The Multifaceted Roles of the Physician Advisor and Influence in Health Care Organizations

We are in the midst of tremendous change in health care. The notion that a physician advisor only needs to know how to determine a proper level of care is well past us at this point. Physicians are taught how to care for patients first and foremost, and that will always be the primary responsibility. Providers are generally not taught how the systems that are built around them work; especially how care translates into reimbursement. There are age-old issues that are still not widely unders...

MACRA and Value-Based Payment Models: Regulatory Changes and Reimbursement Implications

MACRA, MIPS, and APMs...Oh My! Currently, Medicare measures the value and quality of care provided by doctors and other clinicians through a patchwork of programs, including the Physician Quality Reporting System, the Value Modifier Program, and the Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program. Through the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), Congress streamlined and improved these programs into one new Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). Most Med...

MACRA - Changing How Medicare Pays Providers

The Medicare Access and Chip Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) is federal legislation enacted by the United State Congress and signed into law by President Obama on April 16, 2015, intended to contain healthcare costs and to focus Medicare spending on the quality of services beneficiaries receive rather than the quantity of those services. MACRA repeals previous Medicare physician payment formulas, modifies and combines quality and information technology programs, and reauthorizes the 1997 S...
