HSAG supports the Health Care Payment Learning & Action Network by working through our QIN-QIO SOW and our relationships with the Practice Transformation Networks (PTNs) to assist practices in transforming from a traditional, fee-for-service healthcare delivery system to one that is based on the value of care provided. This includes advanced alternative payment models, accountable care organizations or bundled payment arrangements which fall into the APM Framework Categories 3 and 4. HSAG also commits to providing technical assistance to practices regarding the implementation of MACRA and MIPS and successfully reporting relevant measures, improving the coordination of care through electronic exchange of health information, and implementing quality improvement activities to reduce unnecessary testing and hospital readmissions. HSAG will track the number of practices we work with to see how many advanced alternative payment models they join over time, and the percentage of their practice that remains under MIPS.
