Quality Payment Program: An EHR vendors' view
Quality Payment Program is a program for providers and CMS wants to ensure that providers use IT in meaningful ways. In the past, many programs were introduced to incentivize/penalize providers in order to drive them towards these goals. As the number of these programs increased, it became difficult for providers to understand what’s relevant to them. So, now QPP aims to tie these disparate programs together and achieve something bigger than what other programs were able to. We talk about how to prioritize programs and create a roadmap to implement these changes in the 2017.
