AMA resources help practices prepare for MACRA

The American Medical Association (AMA) has developed a number of resources that will help physician practices prepare for the transition to the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) payment system. This includes AMA’s…
– MACRA website, which includes a “checklist with steps practices can take now to prepare, an action kit and slideshow with information about what is in the proposed rule, an outline of advocacy efforts, a ‘Guide to physician-focused payment models,’ and additional resources.”

– ‘Preparing your practice for value-based care’ STEPS Forward® module, which is a “CME-accredited activity [that] provides steps to take, answers to common questions and case vignettes.”

– New ‘Inside Medicare’s new payment system’ podcast series, which was produced by ReachMD. These “downloadable audio stories feature interviews with industry experts and physician leaders.”

– AMA Wire® stories, which address the “latest MACRA developments, how physicians are participating in new models of care, and more.”
