Helping you successfully participate in the Quality Payment Program under MACRA

We all understand that healthcare is undergoing a fundamental transformation as we shift from a fee-for-service model to a fee-for-value model. The Quality Payment Program starting in January 2017 represents the most comprehensive effort to support this shift to date.

Last month the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released the highly anticipated final rule that will implement the Quality Payment Program under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA).

If you’ve read any part of the 2300+ page final rule, it can seem like a daunting proposition for your practice to participate in the program. It doesn’t have to be.

Our team is dedicated to supporting small and independent practices. At Practice Fusion, we believe that policy shifts, election cycles, new regulatory hurdles, industry trends, and other external forces shouldn’t come between you and the practice of medicine. We’re proud that two out of three providers that use Practice Fusion’s EHR platform report that their EHR has helped them stay in private practice,¹ and we look forward to continuing to support your success.

Your Practice Fusion EHR is already certified and ready to help you meet the requirements of the Quality Payment Program in 2017, and we will continue to make it easier for you to participate in the Quality Payment Program with future enhancements. Our current roadmap includes:

  • Expanding your ability to coordinate care by connecting to payers, hospital systems and specialty registries through the interoperability of your EHR.
  • Supporting additional quality measures as well as suites of measures to help you select the ones that are right for your practice.
  • Providing new and improved dashboards to make it easier to track your participation progress on a daily basis.
  • Continuing to streamline daily workflows and enhance usability so you can spend less time documenting and more time focusing on your patients and your practice.
  • Maintaining Health IT certification beyond 2017 by meeting ONC’s latest edition certification criteria, which include criteria for interoperability.

Ultimately the team at Practice Fusion isn’t just committed to helping you successfully participate in the Quality Payment Program, we’re here to help you get the most out of your profession and deliver the highest quality of care to your patients.

We look forward to continuing to support your practice as your partner and advocate in 2017 and beyond.
