Elation Health announces full support for Medicare’s Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) Program April 4, 2017
Today we made an announcement about our efforts to support the independent primary care physicians that are participating and interested in participating in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) program.
CPC+ is an incentive program launched in January 2017 that rewards primary care physicians for delivering high-quality care and provides a path for independent practices to transition to value-based reimbursement while earning recognition for the outstanding care they deliver. Nearly 3,000 practices are currently participating (many of them Elation users) and recently, CMS announced a second round of the program.
“At Elation we focus on improving the provider’s experience through easy to use clinical tools while also helping the provider validate the care the patient has received,” Elation CEO and co-founder, Kyna Fong said in the press release. We believe that the CPC+ initiative aligns with these goals and our mission of strengthening the patient-physician relationship.”
We’ve pledged to support CPC+ practices for the full five-year duration of the program through Elation’s technology and support resources. We’ve invested in making our platform CPC+ ready by developing workflow improvements, reporting capabilities, and collaboration tools within our Collaborative Health Record that enable participating physicians to get the most out of this program.
In addition, we’ve also launched a guide to the program within our resource center, guided webinars to answer any CPC+-related question, and an on-demand health policy team that is ready to support practices throughout the duration of the program.
The second CPC+ performance period begins January 1, 2018. Practices located in up to 10 new CPC+ regions can apply in Summer 2017 with a certified EHR to be eligible for the program. Elation will continue to post updates about the program on our blog and resource center as more information about the second round of the program is released.
