The AHA today updated its MACRA Tracker and issue brief to help hospitals and their clinician partners prepare for the second year of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ physician quality payment program created by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015. The updated Tracker identifies areas where changes to the QPP are unlikely, possible (“proceed with caution”) or expected in the future based on CMS’s recently released proposed rule for calendar year 2018, while the issue brief highlights the rule’s notable proposals. To access the AHA’s complete suite of MACRA tools and resources, including a webinar and video series, visit www.aha.org/MACRA.
