While much of the nation is focused on the possible repeal of the Affordable Care Act and/or the enactment of the American Health Care Act, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) has the potential to quietly transform the health care system. Old models and methods are being transformed by a new focus on value, accountability, integration, and the social determinants of health. A bipartisan law passed in 2015, MACRA is in its first year of implementation.

On this webinar, a renowned health care economist and researcher, who serves on the Physician-Focused Payment Model Technical Advisory Committee (PTAC), will discuss the new economic incentives facing providers, with a particular focus on the organizational and sustainability implications for CBOs. Major public policy initiatives and private sector payment models will be discussed, and tips and tools for staying on top of key changes in the field will be shared.

AAAs and other CBOs deliver valuable, proven and desired services to communities all over the country -- services that health care providers and payers need to optimize care and lower costs. But they often aren’t fluent in the fluent in the language of payment reform: MACRA, MIPS, APM, PCMH, SIM. If understood fully, these acronyms could translate into real opportunity for your organization. Tune in to this webinar to make sense of and capitalize on the alphabet soup of change rocking the health care world.
