AGA Webinar: Supporting IBD Practice Excellence

May 12, 2015

Join Dr. Larry Kosinski as he discusses value-based payment system programs and his practice's reporting experiences.

The recently passed sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula repeal legislation transitions physicians to a value-based payment system. The law empowers physicians to determine their updates by how much risk they are willing to take on when enrolling in either the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) or an alternative payment model (APMs).

APMs, such as bundle payment models, will yield a higher return since the physician takes on more risk. MIPS is based on some of the current quality improvement programs, such as the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), value-based payment modifier (VBPM) and meaningful use, which are combined in the new legislation. It’s now more important than ever to understand how these programs work so that you aren’t faced with penalties in the next few years

Join Lawrence R. Kosinski, MD, MBA, AGAF, AGA Institute practice councillor, for a webinar, “Supporting IBD Practice Excellence with the AGA DHRP-Qualified Registry,” as he outlines these programs and shares his experience with reporting.

The webinar will take place Wednesday, June 17, 2015, from noon to 1 p.m. ET. Register now.
