In 2017 Medicare will roll out the largest change to Medicare Part B payment since 1997 through the implementation of the Quality Payment Program (QPP) in an effort to drive clinician engagement and enhance the quality, cost effectiveness and health of the population. The Colorado QPP Coalition has been formed to help clinicians* and their practice teams successfully transition to the new program.

HealthTeamWorks has joined other Coalition members, listed below, and we are united in a mission to:

  • Increase QPP awareness among Colorado health care providers using common messaging
  • Organize education efforts
  • Coordinate effective and efficient technical assistance for physician practices

Please join us on Thursday, February 16th at 12:15 pm Mountain time to learn the basics of the Quality Payment Program, including the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and the Advanced Alternative Payment Model tracks, and the support available to navigate and succeed in Medicare’s value-based program.
