Oregon MACRA Playbook Conference: Medicare’s Quality Payment Program and the Move to Value-Based Care

As part of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), the Quality Payment Program (QPP) changes the Medicare payment system to reward physicians and other health care providers for delivering high-value care. The shift from a fee-for-service model to a value-based one will require changes throughout the health care system, including better information sharing and collaboration between providers, and among health care payers.

This Oregon MACRA Playbook event provides a forum for these stakeholders, including primary care providers, specialists, independent practices, health systems, health care payers and policymakers, to hear the latest Quality Payment Program information from national experts and local health care leaders, and better understand what these changes mean for their organization.

The event program includes:

  • Presentations from national experts from the Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement (NRHI), the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)
  • Practical information on the two tracks of the Quality Payment Program: the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APM); detailed session on each of the MIPS categories (Quality, Improvement Activities, Advancing Care Information and Cost)
  • How other stakeholders, including payers and policymakers, have a role to play in aligning their work with the Quality Payment Program
  • Practical information for healthcare providers, administrators and others across primary care and specialties 
Registration Fees: The registration fee includes a light breakfast and lunch.

  • Individual Registration: $200
  • Early bird registration: $150 (ends June 5th)
