Physician Compensation in the 21st Century / Physician Leadership
Physician leaders advocated to Congress over a twelve-year period to repeal the SGR, while working with CMS to implement three pay-for-performance programs: the Physician Quality Reporting System, the Value Based Modifier, and the Meaningful Use of electronic health records. Physician leaders sought relief from penalties for physicians with no measures, help with new measures and registries, and flexibility in the rules to accommodate the wide variation across specialties, practice settings, geographies, and patient populations. While MACRA modifies the rules for these programs, it does not remove the fundamental underlying tensions. This webinar session will help physician leaders prepare for the challenges that lie ahead in implementing MACRA.
