New WHA MACRA Physician-Focused Education Video Now Available

December 16, 2016

As a direct result of input from WHA’s Physician Leaders Council, WHA has developed a brief high-level video targeted at an audience of staff physicians that our members’ physician leaders can show in departmental staff meetings, etc., to help educate their physicians in advance of and during their organizations’ implementation of MACRA.

The video can be found here:

The video features WHA’s incoming 2017 physician leader representatives on the WHA Board of Directors—Andy Anderson, MD and Mark Thompson, MD.

MACRA has been a significant focus of WHA in 2016, both advocating for flexibility in CMS MACRA rulemaking and providing education to members on this significant change to how Medicare reimburses physicians. WHA also knows that as our members begin to implement MACRA-driven changes in 2017 they will face challenges in helping to educate and explain MACRA to their physicians. The goal of the new WHA video is to provide an additional resource to our members and their physician leaders to help them meet those challenges.

Additional resources on MACRA are also available on the MACRA section of WHA’s website, including two webinars provided in August and November. The MACRA section of WHA’s website can be found at

For more information about the new video, contact Matthew Stanford, WHA general counsel, at or Chuck Shabino, MD, WHA chief medical officer, at or call WHA at 608-274-1820.
