What is the Quality Payment Program (QPP) and how does it relate to MACRA?

The Quality Payment Program was created by CMS to house the mandated MIPS and APM tracks created by MACRA. Under MACRA, CMS is tasked to reduce Medicare spending while improving health outcomes for its beneficiaries. The aim of the QPP is to incentivize clinicians who offer quality care cost-effectively and desensitize clinicians who continue to provide costly services with little benefit to patients.
