Overview

The MACRA Final Rule will impact providers who accept Medicare Part B payments, bill Medicare more than $10,000/year and provide care for more than 100 Medicare patients a year. As the final rule comes into effect this year, the focus for providers shifts to value-based care.

In the first part of its two part webinar series, CitiusTech provided an overview of the Quality Payment Program and defined a strategic roadmap for eligible clinicians. View our past webinar (Demystifying MACRA) here.

The second webinar in the MACRA series is titled ‘MACRA final rule made simple’ which will offer an in-depth analysis of MIPS/ MACRA and help you best prepare your organization for the transition.

Register for our one-hour webinar where Dr. Matt Johnson, VP, (Centra Health) and Jeffrey Springer, VP, Healthcare Solutions (CitiusTech) will help you map your MIPS/ MACRA reporting strategy for 2017 and effectively focus on cost and resource utilization.
