Quality Payment Program

Guiding clinicians to success in quality payment program requirements.

Patients First

The intention of QPP is to make Medicare better by keeping patients at the center of healthcare. Changes in the program are working to streamline the reporting and participation process. CMS’ priority is to further reduce burdensome requirements so that clinicians can deliver the best possible care to patients. These changes are paving the way to improve care delivery by supporting and rewarding clinicians who improve care coordination and population health management and find new ways to engage patients and families.
