In 2017 Medicare will roll out the largest change to Medicare Part B payment since 1997 through the implementation of the Quality Payment Program (QPP) in an effort to drive clinician engagement and enhance the quality, cost effectiveness and health of the population. The Colorado QPP Coalition has been formed to help clinicians* and their practice teams successfully transition to the new program.
Coalition members, listed below and those that choose to join, are united in a mission to:
- Increase QPP awareness among Colorado health care providers using common messaging
- Organize education efforts
- Coordinate effective and efficient technical assistance for physician practices
The Colorado QPP Coalition will make resources, training and technical assistance accessible to clinicians and their team via an organized multi-media educational campaign. The coalition will provide a robust training curriculum beginning January 2017 through the end of at least 2018.
