[Podcast] Are Clinicians Prepared for MACRA?

By Erin Heilman. Posted Jun 09, 2017 in Quality Reporting, MACRA/MIPS Program, Academy

In a recent Black Book Research Survey, over 8,000 physicians reported their top 10 concerns about MACRA in 2017. Not surprisingly, compliance, EHR optimization and reimbursement potential top that list. 

In our fourth episode of our Quality Matters podcast, we speak with Denise Scott, Director of Ambulatory Services at Medisolv, who helps us to break down this survey and figure out what it means for the 2017 MIPS reporting year. Denise offers us some tips to help prepare for a successful first year of MACRA.


 

Who we talked to:

Denise Scott is the Director of Ambulatory Services at Medisolv. Denise has more than 30 years of experience in health care and over 15 years in health care technology.

She is a subject matter expert in workflow redesign and meaningful use, and is board certified in nursing informatics. Denise is also a certified MACRA/MIPS Healthcare Professional.
