We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 11/17 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by Jim Tate (@jimtate) from EMR Advocate and MIPS Consulting on the topic of “MACRA/MIPS: Chutes & Ladders 2.0.”
As Meaningful Use fades into the sunset we witness the arrival of the MACRA/MIPS program. The most significant change in Medicare Part B reimbursement in a generation has arrived. Fueled by the shift to “pay for value”, this zero-sum legislation guarantees there will be winners and losers. I am reminded of the childhood board game, Chutes & Ladders, where you were either climbing up or sliding down.
Join us as we dive into this topic during this week’s #HITsm chat using the following questions.
