Patient-centered, team-based care is not just a passing fad or a certificate on the wall. It is a culture that must be established, reinforced, and woven into the fabric of site operations. Ensuring sustainability of the transformation is what makes Practice Advancement Strategies stand out from many competitors.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) established the Quality Payment Program, a new payment approach that rewards high-quality patient care through participation in Advanced Alternative Payment Models (Advanced APMs) and the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).
"Partnering with Practice Advancement Strategies proved to be the best choice for guiding Westchester Medical Center's outpatient department in achieving NCQA recognition as a Patient-Centered Medical Home.”
