Remember how we discussed that most physicians don't understand MACRA? If not, look here.
Now, this: few doctors believe Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) will lower healthcare spending, and even less support bundled payments to drive down costs!
...and still most (53%) don't know what MACRA is!
Take a look...
Just 22% of the 621 doctors surveyed thought accountable care organizations would lower spending, and 21% supported using bundled payments to drive down costs. At the same time, 29% of doctors thought both ACOs and episode-based payment would improve patients' health outcomes. Few doctors understand the requirements of the Quality Payment Program as well; 47% of physicians surveyed said they have heard of MACRA but are not familiar with the requirements. Only 4% said they have in-depth knowledge about the law.
