In an interview with Healthcare Informatics, Numerof & Associates Co-Founder and Managing Partner Michael Abrams discussed readiness among clinicians for the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA).
Abrams says he’s noted some concern in the health care industry about the complexities of MACRA, with some clinicians being severely out of the loop.
“A substantial number of clinicians don’t even know what the (MACRA and MIPS) acronyms stand for. But sooner or later,” Abrams says. “Physicians will need to get involved because there are decisions that need to be made here that require clinical input.”
