A Measure of Insight on MACRA

Featured Presentation:

A 2016 study by Researchers at Weill Cornell Medical College and the Medical Group Management Association found that physicians and their staff spend between 6 and 12 hours per week processing and reporting quality metrics to the government – at a cost of $15.4 billion a year.

As a recent Health Catalyst MACRA survey confirms, that burden is expected to significantly worsen in 2017 and beyond as physicians struggle to report quality metrics for the Medicare Access & CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) – the federal law that changes the way Medicare pays doctors. Commercial health insurers are expected to follow the government’s lead with similar programs of their own. In complex organizations, successfully achieving performance targets and submitting accurately for MACRA incentives will require integrating multiple measures across financial, regulatory and quality departments.

To help identify and align healthcare organizations’ selection of the MACRA quality measures, Health Catalyst® today announced the release of MACRA Measures & Insights™ Built on an industry-leading data and analytics platform integrating over 120 data sources including claims and all major EMRs, the new application helps healthcare organizations track and monitor all MACRA measures across multiple departments.

Moreover, with MACRA Measures & Insights, organizations for the first time can quickly spot areas where their physicians are performing best, and therefor which quality measures to report to Medicare to maximize payment under MACRA.

I begin with a transparency bias. I retired last October as a Primary Physician for 40 years. There were several issues involved, only one involving MACRA. . Lets all agree that a . CARING RELATIONSHIP . between a ‘provider’ and each person is necessary to achieve quality outcomes for healthcare. These outcomes should characterize this healthcare as equitably available, ecologically accessible, justly efficient and reliably effective. That said, here is the question. “What are the working conditions for a physician and their support team that will contribute to each citizen’s healthcare that is mediated by a CARING RELATIONSHIP, defined as… Read more »


Time spent on MACRA is time away from treating patients.
