Upcoming CAPG Webinars-How to Select Measures and Position Your Organization for APMs

CAPG Educational Series 2017 Improvement Activities – How to Select Measures and Position Your Organization for APMs; and Advanced Alternative Payment Models—The Good, Bad and Ugly

CAPG is pleased to present a new complimentary webinar series for physicians and physician groups participating in the Quality Payment Program, part of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA). Through a co-branding agreement with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the sessions combine CMS expertise on the regulation content with CAPG members’ knowledge of how clinicians are responding on the ground to the important changes it brings.

Each session will include Q&A time with the presenters. We believe the webinars will be a valuable resource to help you successfully participate in MACRA in 2017 and beyond. Upcoming sessions in the series will focus on:
