More than a year has done since Congress voted to enact the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 and the Department of Health and Human Services issued its notice of provided rulemaking for MACRA implementation.
Usually, MACRA repeals the better growth rate — a series of Congressional fixes responsible for reducing Medicare expenditures and provider recompense— and authorizes HHS to implement amount-based initiatives aimed at improving care permits for Medicare and CHIP beneficiaries. But MACRA is more than.
Chief among the major objectives provisions of the MACRA proposed rule is the(QPM) Quality Payment Program, which goals to streamline various quality reporting programs under a particular one. The new program made by one of two paths for eligible clinicians: the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPs) & Alternative Payment Models (APMs).
What’s the Quality Payment Program?
The Quality Payment Program enable the Medicare better by helping you concentrate on care quality and the one thing that matters very – making patients healthy. The Quality Payment Program ends the Suitable Growth Rate formula and provides you new tools, models, and resources to help you provide your patients the best possible care. You can select how you want to take part depend on your practice size, specialty, place, or patient population.
The Quality Payment Program(QPP) has 2 tracks you can choose from:
- The Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).
- Advancement of Alternative Payment Models (APMs).

What is the CMS Quality Measure Development Plan (MDP)?
Our Quality Measure Development Plan (MDP), needed by MACRA section 102, is a concentrated framework to help us build and develop quality measures for clinicians. These quality measures would support MIPS and advanced APMs. We had posted the draft MDP on December 18, 2015, and asked about the public’s comments on March 1, 2016. We got and carefully considered comments & feedback from 60 individuals and 150 institutions.
On May 2, 2016, we had posted the final Quality Measure Development Plan (MDP) that helped main themes and specific recommendations through the public comments. We will ready an annual report on progress in improving quality measures for the Quality Payment Program (QPP) and update the MDP as needed.
Where could I learn more about the CMS MDP?
We arranged together with a Technical Expert Panel (TEP) on November 17, 2016, to perform on the 2017 MDP Annual Report and future MDP updates. The TEP utilized an environmental scan and gap exam to develop recommendations for advancing clinician quality measure.
- Read the MDP TEP Meeting Summary.
- Study the 2016 CMS MDP Environmental Scan findings and Gap Analysis Report.
The conclusion and report focus on the initial set of primary and specialty gap areas found in the MDP. We hope to find more specialty and subspecialty primaries in ongoing environmental scans & gap analyses. This aids us to:
- Get expert input.
- Measures of Gauge quality.
- Lessen clinician burden.
Meet our aim of a person-focused, value-based measure to help the Quality Payment Program.
