Physician payment is no longer based on volume, but on patient-centered, high-quality care and reduced use of resources. Payment is now computed based on the following elements of practice – Resource Use, Physician Quality Reporting, Advancing Care Information (previously Meaningful Use) and Clinical Practice Improvement Activities. Learn how each element can affect your payment and incentives (or penalties). Check back frequently for updates and tools to help you make important decisions for your practice and patients.
Understand How MACRA, MIPS and APM will impact your payment now and in the future. Two new educational resources by Dr. Zimmerman and Dr. Williams will help you understand the different practice models and how each impacts your revenues. Penalties and incentives will apply and will increase in 2017-2020. Important practice decisions need to be made now to survive and thrive in this changing environment.
This series of three videos, several presented by Harvard professors who study behavioral health, will give you valuable insights into how to more broadly influence patient behavior and have patients take on more responsibility for their health. Physicians ask why they are accountable for patients who won’t maintain a healthy weight, stop smoking or manage their diabetes. In this series, you will learn how to involve patients in decisions about their own care. Everyone wins when you are able to help patients change bad habits, for good.

Rural practices differ from others in many ways. Their practices are smaller and patients have different demographics and illnesses/injuries. Patients behave differently, and referrals to specialists are difficult – patients sometimes have to travel more than 100 miles. Information shared here is specifically geared to provide information and practice assistance for the rural physician.
