SDAHO is offering an educational webinar on the final MACRA rule.

“The MACRA Final Rule: Evaluating the Impact and Opportunities for Critical Access Hospitals,” planned for Thursday, Nov. 17, 2016, from 1:30–3 p.m. CST,
is appropriate for senior level administrators, directors, clinical management and practice administrators. The webinar will provide critical access hospitals with strategies to analyze their current infrastructure, evaluate their readiness for the MACRA regulation, identify key areas of improvement and estimate their financial impact under the regulation.

In April, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Cervices published a proposed rule in implementation of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). CMS received numerous comments from small and rural providers expressing concerns over reporting requirements and their ability to meet the proposed guidelines. Those concerns were taken into consideration and the Final Rule was released Oct. 14.

The webinar will be led by Steve Parde, MBA, CMPE, managing director of BKD National Health Care Group, and Steve Smith, MBA, CMPE, marketing consultant with BKD National Health Care Group.

The site fee is $150 for SDAHO institutional or associate members or $300 for non-members. Electronic registration is available here.
