2017 MACRA Survey Reveals Interesting Findings

2017 MACRA Survey Reveals Interesting Findings

A survey conducted by NueMD in 2017 of more than 1,000 healthcare professionals measured how knowledgeable healthcare professionals are about The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) and what outcomes they expect the new payment model to have on their practice.

Key findings include:

  • 50% of those surveyed said they are not familiar with MACRA
  • 56% are unsure if they are expected to participate in 2017
  • 49% have not encountered information on MACRA

What does this mean for your practice?

Professionals, who understand MACRA, are increasingly optimistic. The survey discovered that despite knowing they’ll spend more time reporting, respondents who are very familiar with MACRA believe it will ultimately have a positive impact on their practice over the next three years.
