Great news chiropractors! The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) created Technical Assistance Resource Centers across the nation to help you through the transition to the Quality Payment Program (QPP)!
These resource centers were created by region to better assist with your questions and help to provide information particular to state directives, like those associated with Public Health Registries. You will also find dedicated to the specific objectives of the program, such as a recent webinar with the California Association of Physician Groups (CAPG) about Improvement Activities.
California Association of Physicians Groups (CAPG) Webinar
During this webinar, the CAPG provided its best tips and tricks for choosing and carrying out activities, and not only answered questions about the Improvement category, but also the particular measures. This is almost the equivalent of having a tutor at your disposal!
One of the most beneficial suggestions given last week was to keep the processes that you already have in place. Providers have been wondering about this since the list of activities was originally released in 2016. This revelation brings ease to those who have been adjusting to the new program. This helpful advice is motivating providers to determine what they are trying to accomplish in the future. Providers are also actively researching activities that may align with their goals, and using the activities as a stepping stone toward the improvement of their clinic.
If you are already performing one of the activities, you are still able to receive credit through the reporting program. CMS is not concerned about whether you began the process during the reporting period. They want to know if these suggestions are working for those who are implementing these processes in their practice
