PharmRx Publishes Guide to Healthcare Legislation Changes

Leading Provider of On-Demand Health Solutions Examines the Effects of MACRA and Other Mandates

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - July 28, 2016) - PharmRx Group, a leading provider of on-demand healthcare solutions and best-in-class services that drive better outcomes for doctors, clinics, and practices, today announced it is publishing a guide detailing the impending changes to the healthcare landscape due to a number of legislative mandates, including the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act, or MACRA. The e-book, Must-Have Guide to Looming Healthcare Legislation Deadlines, is available for free download at http://www.pharmrxgroup.com/must-have-guide-to-looming-healthcare-legislation-deadlines.

With regulatory changes affecting reimbursement on the horizon, healthcare providers will be facing a wide array of challenges in the near future. The fee-for-service Medicare payment model is being legislatively transformed into a new healthcare reimbursement model. Value-based care will now form the basis for the decisions that providers make about the care they give and for the reimbursement they will receive. Providers must be well prepared for these changes or risk steep penalties, falling reimbursements rates, or, for small practices, the inevitable loss of independence. PharmRx's new e-book takes a look at the approaching deadlines that will affect the healthcare industry. The guide examines five key areas:

  • MACRA
  • Meaningful Use EHR Incentive Program
  • Certified EHRs
  • HIPAA enforcement
  • ICD-10

"Healthcare costs in the United States have continued to climb to a higher percentage of the national economy than most other countries sustain," says Michael B. Russin, PharmRx's Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder. "Yet, America's health continues to deteriorate with costly chronic diseases. The passage of MACRA changed not only how physicians will be paid, but also how medicine will be practiced. This and other legislative and regulatory actions are transforming healthcare. Our new e-book examines what these developments mean for physicians and practices."
