For 2019, understanding the PI objectives, the collection type mix for Quality, the Exceptions you might be eligible for, and being vigilant about Cost are keys to winning the MIPS race. However, there have been some key changes in the PI and Quality categories for 2019 that warrant extra attention.
Are you planning to submit CAHPS for MIPS survey as a Quality measure for MIPS 2019? Here are 6 things you need to know about what constitutes this measure, and how is it scored.
During the webinar “Get Ready for MIPS 2019”, we discussed the significant changes in all the performance categories and how 2019 version of MyMipsScore is equipped to handle them. Particularly how you can find the best Quality measures across multiple collection types, and how scoring and reweighting works for the newly restructured PI category. We have compiled a list of questions and answers from the webinar for your ready reference.
If you are reporting as a group, you may need to report the All-Cause Hospital Readmission Measure (ACR). Read this post to get your questions answered about Applicability, Reporting, Case Minimum, and Scoring of the All Cause Hospital Readmission Measure.
In a previous blog, we had discussed some of the recent updates announced by CMS for MIPS. One of those updates was the release of Quality Benchmarks for 2018. Here are 4 key things you need to understand about MIPS 2018 Quality Benchmarks.
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 tale of Goldilocks and her penchant for finding things that are “Just Right” strikes a perfect chord with MIPS. On one hand Physician Organizations, healthcare thought leaders, and CMS are trying....
Decision of determining the winning combination of submission method and quality measures is a tough one. For 2017 and 2018 MIPS performance years, only one submission method is available per performance category. Evaluate the available options and pick that submission method very carefully.
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.
