Event Information

Still trying to make heads or tails of Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA)? Not sure where to begin with the proposed rule recently published by CMS? MACRA sunsets the existing PQRS, Meaningful Use and Value Modifier programs and wraps them up into a single new program with their own set of requirements, incentives and penalties. This webinar will outline what CIOs and their staff need to know about the new physician payment system, the technology needed to support the new program and an overview of the proposed rule. CMS staff will explain the nuts and bolts of the new program and detail the proposal they have laid out under “Advancing Care Information”, the piece of the program intended to replace Meaningful Use for clinicians. In addition, hear from our reactor panel on what this means for hospitals and how CIOs can navigate this new world. Got questions on MACRA? Send them in to our new public policy email. We’ll do our best to get these answered on the webinar.
