The Quality Payment Program (QPP), established by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), launched this January and is being implemented in oncology practices across the country. In 2017, practices must report some quality data in order to avoid financial penalties in 2019. ASCO is encouraging oncology practices to test the QPP reporting system before 2018, when quality reporting will require a significantly heavier administrative lift.
Recordings of recent ASCO webinars, along with more QPP resources and updates, are available at ASCO.org/MACRA. Newly featured ASCO webinars include:
A third ASCO webinar—Quality Payment Program: Optimizing Your MIPS Score—will be held on July 10 at 4 PM EST. A recording will be available online following the webinar. ■
