The American College of Physicians (ACP) is greatly encouraged that the proposed rule to implement the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), released yesterday by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), makes significant improvements in simplifying the administrative burden of quality reporting and introducing greater flexibility in meeting federal requirements relating to use of Electronic Health Records (EHR). As Congress intended in enacting MACRA and as ACP has consistently advocated in comments to CMS and recent testimony at a hearing convened by the House Energy and Commerce Committee, the proposed rule:
Reduction in the number of clinical quality measures that need to be reported from nine down to six. These six measures must include one cross-cutting measure and one outcome measure. If an outcome measure is not available, then a clinician can select a “high priority measure” (e.g., appropriate use, patient safety, efficiency, patient experience, and care coordination measures). ACP strongly supports the use of outcome measures; however, we had specifically asked CMS to allow flexibility in terms of their use, particularly in the first year of the program.
The American College of Physicians is the largest medical specialty organization and the second-largest physician group in the United States. ACP members include 143,000 internal medicine physicians (internists), related subspecialists, and medical students. Internal medicine physicians are specialists who apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of adults across the spectrum from health to complex illness.
