The ACCME submitted comment to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) regarding the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) approaches detailed in the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015. In the letter, Graham McMahon, MD, MMSc, President and CEO, ACCME, describes the value of CME and the capacity of the accredited CME system to support the implementation of MIPS. “The ACCME’s educational system and technological framework can be readily leveraged to support the implementation of MIPS, and help our clinician community maintain and advance the quality, safety, and efficiency of care for the patients we all serve,” Dr. McMahon writes.
