MACRA & the Quality Payment Program
ASCO: Your Partner in Practice Transformation
The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) established the Quality Payment Program (QPP), which is transforming the way physicians are reimbursed for services provided under Medicare Part B. As your partner in preparing for these changes, ASCO will regularly update this page with materials to guide practices through the transition. You can also contact us with any questions, comments, or to tell us about your experience implementing MACRA in your practice.
The latest tool to help practices implement QPP, ASCO’s Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI®) Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR), is now available for Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) reporting. After an on-boarding process, participating MIPS practices will be able to meet their QPP requirements by reporting on one or more of the 16 measures available in the registry, and practices that are able to report at least 90 days of data can potentially earn a small positive payment adjustment—if they know the top five ways to prepare for October 2.

Using the app, members can search by name, organization, specialty and/or certification.
With new treatments coming out seemingly daily and limited time for learning, it can be hard to stay on top of the latest in oncology. So when you do have the time, you want the resources you utilize to meet your own learning style. The ASCO Personalized Learning Dashboard helps you to sift through all of the information out there and find content recommendations tailored to your media preferences.
