This post is part of the MACRA Monday series of blog posts where we dive into the details of the MACRA Quality Payment Program.
For this week’s MACRA Monday, I thought I’d offer some insights and perspectives on MACRA from around the Twittersphere. There’s a lot of information about MACRA shared on Twitter and here are some of the best ones I found.

I admit that I’d never heard of BKDHelathcare before, but this 2 minute video offers some good insights into the MACRA decision making process.

SA Ignite is one of the top companies working on MACRA reporting tools. So, it’s no surprise that they’re producing some great content on how to approach MACRA, MIPS and APMs. I hadn’t thought about tracking MIPS even if you’re in an APM, but SA Ignite offers a number of good reasons why organizations might want to consider doing both.

I love a good infographic. We’ve covered most of this in MACRA Monday, but this might be useful for those of you who are just catching up with the details.

The above is a politically correct plea from a doctor. There are other pleas that are a little stronger:
I will NEVER EVER do this MACRA MIPS totalitarian style government run medicine rubric that is better suited for communist China or Cuba. https://t.co/X4t3oZfMyF

@kksheld Amen……I'm with you….I'll never do the MACRA/MIPS either….I'll take the penalty, which is an insult, and join the rebellion!!

Unfortunately, the rebel forces currently aren’t large enough to move the needle. We’ll be watching to see if that changes.
