Acquisitions, Funding, Business, and Stock

Forty-one physicians declare their intent to break away from Novant Health (NC) and form their own medical group – a move similar in nature to last year’s decision by dozens of Atrium Health physicians to leave amid legal wranglings to form Tryon Medical Group. Those physicians now span eight offices to care for 80,000 patients.  Head cardiologist Dale Owen, MD said at the time that the breakaway was because, “We didn’t feel like we were in control of our practice. We didn’t feel like we were serving the patients properly either.”

A blog in Health Affairs suggests several ways CMS can support resource-strapped small practices participating in MIPS, especially those that don’t have the IT infrastructure necessary to meet reporting requirements. (According to 2017 MIPS performance data, smaller practices fared worse than their larger counterparts in the areas of Composite Performance Score and financial penalties.) Suggestions include simplifying or reducing quality reporting requirements, and providing up-front funds for health IT purchases.
