Ellis "Mac" Knight, MD, MBA

Level of Program:

MACRA is an important but little-understood component of reimbursement for physicians, hospitals, and health systems. Many healthcare leaders, administrators, and clinicians still have unresolved questions about how these payments affect their bottom line and how best to deliver value-based care under MACRA. Train your entire leadership and revenue cycle teams on MACRA in this HealthLeaders Media virtual workshop.

During this interactive three-hour program, Coker Group Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer Ellis "Mac" Knight, MD, MBA, will teach participants the ins and outs of MACRA. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions in real time about their own experiences. Polling questions will also help participants see how their responses compare to those of their peers.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to: 

  • List the drivers of value-based care delivery
    • Thought leadership (competing on value)
    • Reimbursements/incentives (MACRA)
    • Healthcare consumerism (patients and employers)
    • Competitive landscape (capturing market share)
    • Provider discontent (the Quadruple Aim)
  • Understand how to organize and operate successfully under MACRA
