AUSTIN, Texas — In this exclusive video perspective from GI Outlook 2018, Colleen M. Schmitt, MD, MHS, FASGE, president of the Galen Medical Group in Chattanooga, Tennessee, highlights a few talks on payment models presented at the meeting.

“We had the opportunity to have some of our experts on MACRA and MIPS give us an update on the status of those new rules and regulations and how they apply to our practice,” she told Healio Gastroenterology and Liver Disease.

She explained how the presenters detailed each category and how the structure is changing, as well as the ways a practice can improve performance across each type.

“We’re seeing how were bridging from the MIPS map over to the alternative payment models, seeing what those paths forward look like,” she said.
