The ACOFP Practice Enhancement Library provides Information and resources to help you run your practice.
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 many elements of practice – EMR Meaningful Use, Physician Quality Reporting, Value-Based Modifiers, Care Coordination, etc. 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.
The ACOFP Quality Markers Program provides the support you need for patient data reporting, population health management and patient-centered medical home (PCMH) Recognition.
