Good Evening, All.
Today was the launch of our new eBook ‘The Essentials of Implementing the New Wave of Health Care Reform’.
Thank you to Everyone Who Attended the First Fireside Chat on Our Facebook Page, https://www.facebook.com/chickswithmds.
For Now, Let Me Introduce You to Purpose, Content and Flow of the eBook:
This is an Interactive Platform that Provides ESSENTIAL FACTS, Resources, References and Web Links, Regarding the Roll Out of the Next Phase of Value-Based Medicine and Reimbursement via Implementation of the Quality Payment Program (QPP).
QPP is a Federally Controlled Platform Created by CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Programs), Utilizing the Provisions of MACRA (Medicare Access and Chip Reauthorization Act).
The Majority of Providers (Physicians, Advanced Practice Nurse, Physician Assistant) Who Care for the 55 Million Americans Enrolled in Medicare Part B, Will Be Required to Participate in the Quality Payment Program (QPP), Effective January 1, 2017.
For Most Providers, this is a Confusing and Frustrating Abyss of Alphabet Soup and Our Hope is to Help Educate and Demystify the Process of Implementing Value-Based Medicine and Resources into Your Daily Practice of Medicine.
Here’s the Breakdown of the Book:
Chapter 1: The Basics of Medicare and Federal Health Care Coverage
