What is MACRA - Join Webinar to learn
“It is appreciable that MACRA was drafted in a way that provides many opportunities to medical specialty societies to work closely with Federal Agencies to regulate the best means of interpreting the law.” said Udayan Mandavia, President/CEO, iPatientCare

iPatientCare, a pioneer in cloud-based ambulatory EHR and Revenue Cycle Management services, announced a monthly Virtual User Conference (VUCON) April 2016 session to share the contemporary knowledge on MACRA to understand the critical preparation for CMS reimbursement on future Meaningful Use changes.

iPatientCare conducts series of knowledge dissemination sessions known as Virtual User Conference (VUCON), every month as part of its commitment to stay connected with their esteemed end users in terms of Education, Exhibition, and Entertainment. VUCON 2016 sessions have been designed with a focus on highlighting new updates of the software and healthcare industry; launches of the iPatientCare new products and software versions with its demonstration; and many useful add-ons for iPatientCare Users.

On April 16, 2015, the "Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015" (MACRA) was contracted and incorporated into the regulation by the President of the United States. This novel regulation revokes the sustainable growth rate formula targeted for Medicare and creation of an unnoticeable passage to increased health related expenditures, principally through an associated and extended incentive program.

This program known as MIPS encompasses the features of the “Quality of Physician” Recording System, EHR Meaningful Use, and Value Based Modifier. In this scenario, the MACRA is fruitful in restructuring the existing federal quality reporting mandates, overcoming the hurdles that currently preclude the specialists from participating meaningfully in these programs, and dropping the amount of physician payment at risk.

“It is appreciable that MACRA was drafted in a way that provides many opportunities to the medical specialty societies to work closely with the federal agencies to regulate the best means of interpreting the law.” said Udayan Mandavia, President/CEO, iPatientCare.

Sunil Tirthdasani, iPatientCare VUCON Coordinator commented, “iPatientCare’s VUCON for April 2016 would provide an overview of the newly introduced government mandate which aims at launching new payment models. The session will also highlight areas that a medical provider needs to take care of in order to meet MACRA requirements. The session is due on Thursday, April 21, 2016 at 3:00 PM EST. “
