This is What it Sounds Like When MACRA

Dig if you will the process
Of you and me engaged in healthcare
The sweat of my typing covers me
Can you, my patient
Can you process this?

Dream if you can a system
Of payments and data run smooth
Providers strike curious poses
We feel the heat
Of changes from old MU

How can you just leave us standing?
In constant changes so cold? (So cold)
You’re definitely too demanding
Or maybe I’m just ancient, too old
You certainly aren’t a good mother
You’re never satisfied (You’re never satisfied)
Why can’t we just see our patients?
This is what it sounds like
When MACRA

Touch if you will my keyboard
Feel how it burns overused
I’ve got arthritis in all my fingers
Don’t make me type more
I sure feel abused

How can you just lead us new ways?
With constant changes untold (Untold)
Think you could be too demanding?
Or maybe I’m just tired, old mold
You certainly aren’t a good mother
You’re never satisfied (You’re never satisfied)
Why can’t we just see our patients?
This is what it sounds like
When MACRA

How can you just leave us hanging?
In management changes so bold? (Changes what’s so bold)
Maybe you’re just a bad steward (Maybe, maybe you’re a too cold)
Maybe I’m just a sad baby, whiny (Ya know I’m whiny)
Maybe you’re just a real “mother” (Maybe you’re just a real “mother”)
You’re never satisfied (You’re never satisfied)
Why can’t we just see our patients? (Can’t we just be, why?)
This is what it sounds like

When MACRA
When MACRA (MACRA, MACRA)
When MACRA (MACRA, MACRA)

Don’t cry (Don’t cry)

When MACRA
When MACRA
When MACRA

When MACRA (MARCA, MACRA, MACRA)

Don’t cry
Doctor, don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t, don’t cry
