PLAINSBORO, N.J.—If you still don’t understand the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), you’re not alone. While small practices have the greatest learning curve, even larger health systems may benefit from a convenient source of information on the 2015 law, which takes effect January 1, 2017.

With that in mind, The American Journal of Managed Care (AJMC) has created the MACRA Compendium, a resource center on that brings together news, commentary, and multimedia content on the law, which pushes Medicare’s transition from fee-for-service to value-based payment. You can find the center at

The MACRA Compendium features content from:

·         The fall meeting of AJMC’s ACO & Emerging Healthcare Delivery Coalition, which discussed how accountable care organizations have laid the groundwork for MACRA.

·         Commentary from several AJMC contributors, including Greg Fulton of Philips Wellcentive and heath information technology strategist Mark Heaney.

·         Video interviews with CMS’ Kate Goodrich, MD, on how physicians can successfully adapt to the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System.
