MACRA

On January 1, 2017, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015

“I had the pleasure of working with my eClinicalWorks MIPS consultant. Without her expertise, I could not have achieved the remarkable scores and incentives I did. She was readily available to answer any questions. I would not want to even attempt to deal with MIPS without help from my trusted eClinicalWorks resource!”
