qiw-october-2qiw-octoberThis week two free workshops were held in Raleigh at the North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) Center for Leadership in Medicine and in Charlotte to give physicians and practice staff the tools and knowledge  needed to survive and thrive in the coming value-based health care era. The shift to value-based reimbursement is being ushered in by the federal MACRA legislation (see previous article). While MACRA focuses on Medicare reimbursement, other payers are already starting to follow the federal government’s lead. Now is the time to learn about what’s ahead.
The ongoing series of workshops is made possible by the federal Practice Transformation Network initiative to help small practices, clinics and critical care hospitals currently unaffiliated with an accountable care organization (ACO) prepare for value-based payments. National Rural Accountable Care Consortium (NRACC) is presenting the workshops in cooperation with their partner Caravan Health.
Dates for the 2017 workshops have been tentatively scheduled for the following dates. Mark your calendar now, and watch the NCMS Bulletin for details on location. Raleigh workshops will be held on Tuesday, April 4; Tuesday, Aug. 4 and Tuesday, Oct. 3. Charlotte area workshops will be held on Wednesday, April 5; Wednesday, Aug. 5 and Wednesday, Oct. 4.
