Preparing for MACRA

HFMA Podcast Featuring Guidehouse's Chris Stanley, M.D. and Tim Murphy

MACRA isn't just another legislative hoop to jump through, but a transformational, fundamental shift in the volume to value transition. But while providers are aware of the law, many are not prepared for key decisions and actions that they need to take right now and in the future to be successful under MACRA, suggest Guidehouse's Chris Stanley, M.D. and Tim Murphy in this HFMA podcast.

According to Dr. Stanley and Tim, MACRA is representative of how health plans, state Medicaid, and direct-to-employer contracts will be reimbursed, and it's another key step in the evolution towards value. They suggest providers do three things:

  • Take full advantage of the "Pick Your Pace" approach and the transitional year to fully report on the full set of metrics this year.
  • Coordinate a reporting strategy with your EHR provider.
  • Set forth true rigor and discipline around a MACRA program within a health system.
