In 2016, America’s Physician Groups (APG) started a partnership with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) by co-branding and co-producing a six-part webinar series (scroll down for archived sessions). America’s Physician Groups’ educational program focused on the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA)’s Quality Payment Program (QPP) with specific emphasis on categories in quality, advancing care information, improvement activities, advanced alternative payment models, and cost. The webcasts included diverse APG speakers along with CMS medical directors and expert agency specialists, talking about the perspectives most relevant to them as they relate to MACRA and the implementation of QPP.
Here at APG, we make a commitment to leading the pillar of excellence around education for our members. As such, we teamed up with CMS for physicians and physician groups implementing MACRA, focusing on the Merit Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and alternative payment models (APMS). We hosted sessions that combined CMS expertise on the regulation’s content with America’s Physician Groups’ members’ knowledge of how clinicians are responding on the ground to these important changes and care models.
APG designed the series to provide physicians and physician organizations the “how to” for APM implementation. Given our leadership with advanced payment models, we are well positioned to share best practices and lessons learned in this area. Each session will include Q&A time with the presenters. We hope the webinars will be a valuable resource to help you successfully participate in APMs this year and beyond.
