Few clinicians prepared for Quality Payment Program
Fewer than one in four physicians feel they are prepared to meet requirements under the CMS’ Quality Payment Program (QPP), a new American Medical Association and KPMG survey shows.
The organizations canvassed 1,000 doctors involved in QPP-related practice decision-making. Of those, only 8% said they were “deeply knowledgeable” about MACRA and QPP, while 51% said they were “somewhat knowledgeable” and 41% did not consider themselves knowledgeable.
In a separate survey by Nuance Communications, 60% of hospital leaders who were confident they understood QPP requirements underestimated or did not know what they financial impact might be.
