As the QIO for South Carolina, The Carolinas Center for Medical Excellence is committed to helping practices move to APMs through our contract cycle, which ends July 2018, as we understand the importance and need for a successful transition. We will serve as a catalyst and convener for the HCPLAN by working with interested clinicians through promotional strategies that include, but are not limited to, email blasts, newsletters, and website promotions, as well as through our partners’ meetings, newsletters and websites. All recruited clinicians will be provided guidance, tools, and resources during the process. This collaborative effort will include quarterly interactive learning/webinar sessions and assistance with tracking their progress of transitioning to an APM.
Our goal is reach 6500 providers over the next 2 years. We will survey our providers and partners to assure we are proving timely, meaningful information to help them move through the stage of MACRA advancing to APM. We monitor the attendance at LAN events and satisfaction in an internal dash board. This information is shared at quarterly stakeholder meetings which include provider representation, Medical Society and other professional support organizations. Together, we partner to increase awareness and address local challenges.
We also receive annual CMS updates on all eligible providers’ performance which will indicate on a global level the state’s progress in adoption of APM.
