Over 170 healthcare leaders joined us for the 2017 PP-PAHCOM/CMGMA Colorado Payer Day. Speakers and participants held discussions on how health care policy decisions could shape reimbursements and the evolution of data sharing to drive value-based care models.
Jean Haynes, Chief Population Officer at UCHealth, discussed how groups like the CIVHC and COHRIO are working to make data more useful for practices across the state. For example, CIVHC is leading the Total Cost of Care and Resource Use project to provide Primary Care Physician groups better understanding of their cost and resource use patterns relative to broader averages.
Rebecca Weiss, Senior Director of Government Relations for Anthem, explained of the value of these type collaborations, saying, “The lynch pin for quality improvement and cost savings is data. The system is evolving to allow data sharing so partners can work effectively towards the same goals.”
While ACOs, large healthcare systems, and payers work to define attribution models that will make data actionable for all practices, practice administrators must assess and prepare for changes under MACRA.
CMGMA has partnered with the Colorado Quality Payment Program Coalition (Link: http://www.cmgma.com/news/4756765) to bring you resources you need to understand the requirements for MIPS and APMs.
