According to an AMA/KPMG survey in 2017, only 23% of physicians feel they are “well prepared” to meet MACRA/MIPS requirements. Strategic Interests is working with the New York eHealth Collaborative to assist practices in their adoption and development of quality improvement strategies. Many of these programs are fully funded by government grants. Programs include:
- BHIT: SI helps agencies providing home and community based services to Medicaid patients to select and implement EMRs as part of the NYS DOH Behavioral Health Information Technology (BHIT) Program.
- EP2: SI helps specialists service Medicaid populations with administrative processes to attain Meaningful Use.
- APC: Help for primary care providers in small practices to prepare for payment reform with transformation and ongoing education and support through the Advanced Primary Care Program.
- PTN: SI is assisting doctors and other providers to gain the strategic, business, operational and technical capabilities to prepare for the value based payment environment with the Practice Transformation Network program.
“Reimbursement changes are eminent, even if the specifics of the payment criteria have not been clearly defined and even if they will probably change. Proactive practices are utilizing this program (PTN) to determine their shortfalls and making operational changes to be prepared, regardless of how the specifics end up shaking out.” — Bill Lavoie, SI Project Manager
