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).
"They guided us through the PCMH process. The work plans, site-specific training, and focus on the people side of change helped us gain buy-in and accelerate the adoption process. They knew what we were going to say about our practice concerns or pain points before we even said it—and then they offered strategies to assist. They helped us understand the intricacies of not only the NCQA PCMH standards, but how to ensure true practice transformation."
