The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) is changing the way physicians are paid. MACRA consolidates three Medicare quality programs into one new program called the Quality Payment Program (QPP). Under the QPP, physicians will be assessed based on their performance in four categories: quality, cost, improvement activities, and advancing care information (ACI). The ACI category replaces the Medicare EHR Incentive Program (Meaningful Use).

Erin Solis, Regulatory Compliance Strategist at the AAFP, will provide an in-depth review of the ACI performance category and its scoring requirements. This webcast will help physicians understand this complex category and identify ways to maximize their ACI score.
