MACRAs Impact on Patient Engagement and Care Coordination

The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently released its final rule for the Medicare Access & CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). MACRA represents the biggest change in how Medicare pays providers for services in decades. It will fast-track the CMS and healthcare industrys drive toward value-based payments – in essence, paying health care providers based on the quality of care they provide, not just the volume of services. MACRA legislation includes a number of requirements that will impact different areas of the healthcare delivery system, including patient engagement and care coordination.
