In our last blog, we had discussed about the MIPS 2017 performance feedback reports that became available on June 29, 2018. These reports provide the final MIPS score and the corresponding final payment adjustment that will be applied to 2019 Part B payments. For most people, the final scores were what they expected. However, many are crying foul over the payment adjustments.
The moment of truth is drawing near. According to CMS, the first MIPS performance feedback reports will be available shortly in July, and will provide the 2017 final MIPS score and the MIPS payment adjustment applicable to the eligible clinicians beginning Jan 1, 2019. Learn how to get ready for reviewing your report and how to go about requesting a Targeted Review in case you find any discrepancy in your report.
I am often asked how does MyMipsScore differ from the many “submission” options available in the market. A demo of our solution usually answers that question satisfactorily. But how do you compare yourself with a free option provided by the government? I am going to address that elephant in the room today…..
Over the last decade, billions of American tax payer dollars have been spent to achieve “interoperability” in healthcare. Has it worked? The answer depends on who you ask. However, everyone agrees that we have a long way to go. Can FHIR® might be the answer to the interoperability conundrum?
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.
This post focuses on MIPS Payment Adjustment Calculation, and implications of MIPS Score that go beyond money. If you are wondering why you should even bother with MIPS or are thinking of doing just enough to avoid the penalties, read to find out how you can maximize your MIPS score easily with help of a tool like MyMipsScore.
