A practicing physician board certified in gastroenterology and internal medicine, Dr. Soloman Shah, MD, has been with Gastrointestinal Medical Associates in Reston, Virginia, since 1999. Alongside his daily work with patients, Dr. Soloman Shah, MD, is a member of the American College of Physicians (ACP).
In an effort to provide guidance to its members, ACP recently rolled out a new online platform, dubbed the Quality Payment Advisor, providing comprehensive information about the Quality Payment Program, a new facet of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA).
Available for free to all ACP members, the new web tool will provide individualized information based on the specific aspects of a physician’s practice and quality initiatives, helping doctors decide which of the two payment models–Merit-Based Incentive Payment System or Advanced Alternative Payment Model–best suits their needs.
To see the web tool in action and learn more about what doctors need to do in order to prepare for the new payment program, visit www.acponline.org/macra/.
