BOISE, Idaho, March 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- An upcoming Executive Roundtable event, sponsored by WhiteCloud, is drawing senior healthcare executives from across the nation to learn about fiscal and organizational strategies for value-based care.
MACRA – the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 – is new legislation driving changes to physician payment models. It includes two kinds of reimbursement structures: Merit Based Incentive Payment Systems (MIPS) and Alternative Payment Models (APMs). Because this legislation is driving healthcare organizations across the country to make drastic changes without clear guidelines for implementation, it is critical for healthcare executives, physician leaders and network vice presidents to understand the implications of this new regulation.
WhiteCloud™, a leading provider of healthcare performance management technologies, is hosting an executive roundtable that will share best practices from industry experts on managing the implications of MACRA by safeguarding revenues and combat rising costs.

"Managing the complex regulatory environment around programs like MACRA are critical to success in a value-based world, and we are committed to helping health systems drive physician-led outcome improvement and cost reduction."
The Executive Roundtable—MACRA, MIPS and APMs: Fiscal Strategies and Organizational Positioning for Value-Based Reimbursement—will be Thursday, April 13 from 7:30-11 a.m. at the Westin Hotel in San Jose, California. Registration is currently open.

Swanson, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Propel Health; Keith Brown, WhiteCloud Analytics; and Jim Whitfill, MD, Officer, Innovation Care Partners.
