Recorded Thursday, Dec. 7, 2017

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) brings quality and accountability of care to the forefront with programs that affect processes and payment for medical practices and ACOs. As we near the end of the first year of the Quality Payment Program (QPP) for physicians and other eligible clinicians under MACRA, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) finalized changes for the second year of the program. There are implications for your patient experience programs, CMS reporting and reimbursement. Understanding the program details can put your organization in a stronger position to succeed.

On Dec. 7 at 1:00 p.m. ET, we heard from Press Ganey expert, Kaycee Glavich, Director of Policy. She provided an overview of the Quality Payment Program, with a focus on CAHPS programs and other patient experience measures, including:

  • Eligibility for Advanced APMs and MIPS
  • Requirements and financial implications for participation in an Advanced APM vs. MIPS
  • CMS’ recent QPP final rule for Calendar Year 2018
  • The role of measuring patient experience through CAHPS and ongoing surveying
  • The future of MIPS and the broader policy discussion
