Value-based care payment is being pushed to the forefront in medical care. We are currently in the first performance year of MACRA (“The Medicare Access & CHIP Reauthorization Act”), which has changed how providers will be paid by Medicare.
In order to prepare for the new era in healthcare reimbursement, McLeod Health is building a Clinically Integrated Network (CIN) “McLeod Healthcare Network.” A CIN establishes a platform that allows independent and employed providers to collaborate across the continuum of care, removing barriers to the coordination of patient care and increasing the efficiency of care delivery. It is a physician-led, patient-centered approach to healthcare that will improve quality and provide greater value for patients, providers, payers and our communities at large.
The McLeod Healthcare Network will provide the infrastructure and legal grounding to allow physicians to truly band together to move the needle on quality improvement and achieve success under MACRA. View the below videos for a better understanding of the program.
If you are interested in finding out more about the McLeod Healthcare Network, please review the attached documents. If you have questions about the McLeod Health Network or how to join, please complete the form below.
Clinical Integration is when a group of physicians organize themselves to improve the cost and quality of healthcare by operating under a shared set of clinical guidelines. View the video to left for more information.
The Medicare Shared Savings Program brings population health management to Medicare patients through a new delivery model called an Accountable Care Organization (ACO). An ACO is a group of healthcare providers including hospitals, physicians, and others who are collectively responsible for the cost and quality of care a particular set of patients receive over time. For more details, view the video to the left.
CMS is moving forward on the implementation of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) and recently released its final regulations for implementation in 2017. Under MACRA, nearly all providers who bill under the Physician Fee Schedule will be subject to the new Quality Payment Program (QPP), making understanding of the final rule an imperative for providers.
