Solutions to the New Challenges Facing ACOs and ACO Participants from the 2021 QPP Final Rule

In this webinar, Rachel Katz and Darren O’Brien thoroughly explains four key changes in the 2021 Quality Payment Program (QPP) Final Rule: the discontinuation of the CMS Web Interface, the introduction of the Alternative Payment Model (APM) Performance Pathway (APP), the discontinuation of the APM scoring standard, and the expanded use of the APM entity submitter type. These changes create eight new challenges in quality measurement for ACOs in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) and ACO participants in the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).
