The Quality Payment Program (QPP) began January 1st 2017 under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA). This program is an effort to drive clinician engagement and enhance the quality, cost effectiveness and health of the population. The Colorado QPP Coalition has been formed to help clinicians* and their practice teams successfully transition to the new program.

Coalition members, listed below, and those that choose to join, are united in a mission to:

  • Increase QPP awareness among Colorado health care providers using common messaging 
  • Organize education efforts
  • Coordinate effective and efficient technical assistance for physician practices

The Colorado QPP Coalition will make resources, training and technical assistance accessible to clinicians and their team via an organized multi-media educational campaign. 

The Coalition will utilize a dedicated web site to spotlight specific resources and information to help clinicians and their teams successfully transition to the QPP. Coalition partners will maintain an updated calendar of educational opportunities provided by Colorado experts.
