Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act, MACRA, is an act put into place as a replacement to the previous Medicare reimbursement schedule. It is a program that enables patients to pay not simply for the service but for the quality of the service, MACRA focuses on rewarding healthcare providers and encouraging them to provide better care. It incorporates the Physician Quality Reporting System, Value-Based Modifier, and Meaningful Use to form the Quality Payment Program. Healthcare providers can engage with this through either an Advanced Alternative Payment Model (APM) or the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). PrognoCis is a MACRA-certified EHR software that contributes to shifting the gaze to quality-based healthcare.
