Last week, CMS released the QPP final rule for 2019. We will be doing a series of blogs and webinar to discuss the changes in details and how it impacts EHR developers and providers.

Holiday times are over. 2018 is here and it brings a flurry of activity with it. It is time for 2017 MIPS data submissions, and start off the second year of MIPS on the right foot. CMS was hard at work churning out multiple updates last week to help us do exactly that. In this post, we focus on the five of the key MIPS updates that CMS recently made.
The key differentiator of FHIR from any previous standards used in the healthcare is the portability of FHIR “resources”. This granular approach to storing and consuming healthcare data opens up many more new opportunities as compared to the traditional document-based methods. However, this approach also presents some challenges. Can Azure Cosmos DB be the perfect solution to those challenges?
FHIR has gained a lot of momentum in a very short time. Learn with the help of a a simple scenario to demonstrate how FHIR could drastically reduce data entry burden for reporting the Quality Performance Category.
Are you wondering if MIPS score of 100 is achievable? Well it is with some strategic planning and knowing where to focus on. Read on to find out how.

Quality category score plays an important role in maximizing the MIPS score. With MIPS, every point translates into dollars. This blog focuses on three important things you need to consider to maximize the Quality category score, and thus the payment adjustment.
