JACKSON, Mich., Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Anesthesia Business Consultants (ABC), a leading provider in billing and practice management for the anesthesia and pain management specialty, is pleased to announce they will be attending the ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2016 Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL, held this weekend October 22nd - 26th at the McCormick Place. This five-day event allows you to participate in world-class education presented by thought leaders in the specialty, enhance your professional skills and discover what's new in anesthesia care.
ABC will be introducing its pioneering MACRA Made Easy platform which prepares our clients for the changes due to go into effect next year with the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), as part of CMS's Quality Payment Program.
Fee-for-service has been the traditional methodology for reimbursements, but as CMS transitions to a pay-for-performance methodology, it is easy to get lost in the acronyms and the policy. ABC's MACRA Made Easy platform guides clients through the changes and provides a structured and practice-specific platform to ensure that a practice is not only protected from penalties, but puts itself in line for incentive payments. ABC has led the way with our proprietary Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) program and we will continue to provide that pathway to success for anesthesia and pain management providers.
Tony Mira, President and CEO of ABC, states, "The theme at this year's ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2016 is 'Leading the Future of Health Care,' which fits right in with ABC's QCDR program and our over-arching platform to guide our clients through the transition to the Quality Payment Program—MACRA Made Easy. The government's change from a fee-for-service model to a pay-for-performance methodology requires providers to track and maintain standardized metrics on their quality performance. QCDR reporting offers the greatest level of flexibility and alignment with anesthesia practices and is the recommended approach for all providers to comply with these governmental quality requirements. ABC can help usher you into the future of healthcare with our new QCDR and our MACRA Made Easy platform walks you through the steps."
You can find ABC at Booth #4028 of the McCormick Place.
