Webinar: Introducing the Northern New England Practice Transformation Network
Helping Clinicians & Practices Succeed: A New Resource for Supporting Primary & Specialty Care Practices
PQRS, Value Modifier, Value-Based Payments - it seems the change never stops!
While clinicians are focused on improving care for their patients, they also face ever-increasing expectations of value and service. Soon, most Medicare and other payments will be based on complex value and quality measures that will be unfamiliar to many medical practices. And along with these measures will come new financial incentives and penalties.
We want you to be ready. That's why Maine Quality Counts and regional partners have created the Northern New England Practice Transformation Network, a federally-funded set of resources and learning opportunities that specialist and primary care practices in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont can join at no cost.
Attend this webinar to learn how, and hear from the Network's leaders about available services, including:
Baseline assessment of your practice and a support plan tailored to the specific needs of your practice
No-cost access to PQRS Solutions, assistance with PQRS reporting to CMS
Flexible range of educational offerings from PTN Learning Collaborative
