MACRA will create clear winners and losers.
Those who move fastest toward the Triple Aim will thrive in new payment models.
The most successful health systems and clinicians will be those that look beyond short-term compliance with payment model reform and instead seize the opportunity to transform their business models. These winners will draw on internal and external resources to deliver exceptional, cost-effective care for individuals while building healthy, sustainable communities.
But health systems and clinicians that take a wait-and-see approach could face significant revenue shortfalls in years to come.

We quantify the upside of participation in new payment models as well as the potential downside of non-compliance. Then we empower you with insights into your organization’s ideal strategy, as well as the steps you will need to take to come out ahead.
