CMS Releases APIs to Assist Physicians and Developers in Implementing MACRA Quality Payment Program

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has released application program interfaces (APIs) to help physicians implement the Quality Payment Program mandated by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). Developers can use the APIs to build software applications to help physicians and their practices automatically share electronic quality measure data for the program.

This release is part of CMS’ ongoing efforts to spur the development of innovative, customizable tools that reduce burden for physicians and support high-quality care for patients.

The American Hospital Association has also released an infographic to depict the two new payment pathways for clinicians under MACRA. It highlights who is eligible for the programs, payment impact and evaluation criteria. Click here to access the infographic.
