Community Practitioners Learn How to Manage What the Future Holds

Participants in the North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) Foundation Community Practitioner Program (CPP) gathered for their annual meeting at the M3 Conference last Friday to learn how to prepare for the challenges of the shift to value-based reimbursement.

The NCMS Foundation’s CPP provides help with student loan repayment and practice management assistance for health care providers in return for their service in the neediest communities.

Representatives of the National Rural Accountable Care Consortium (NRACC), which offers free workshops to help practices and clinics not currently affiliated with an ACO understand and get ready for the changes to value-based reimbursement, presented an overview of what’s ahead under the new federal Quality Payment Program – what used to be called MACRA – as well as practical tips on how to prepare a practice for the change.

The free training, which is thanks to a federal grant, is available to any independent practice or clinic unaffiliated with an ACO. SAVE THE DATE — the next workshop will be held in Raleigh on Tuesday, Oct. 18 and in Charlotte on Wednesday, Oct. 19. Learn more and register here.
