Just because you are new to MACRA and MIPS doesn’t mean you need to feel like a novice. The AdvancedMD MACRA experts have produced another free resource in our MACRA Survival Series to help MACRA beginners succeed.
Our latest guide is entitled Quality Beginner’s Guide, formerly PQRS and CQMs. This step-by-step guide is designed to walk you through three key elements of MACRA Quality.
- Within MIPS Performance categories for 2017, 60% of the weight is on Quality. We explain why and show you how to report on the 6 Measures with AdvancedMD.
- We explain the details for each of your chosen Quality criteria and share how to set up and begin collecting necessary data. We detail the differences between two data submission methods: Claim-based reporting and EHR-based reporting.
- We provide a simple (sort of) calculator to determine your Quality Score.
As a bonus, we show how to achieve bonus scores. Although there are no thresholds you have to achieve in the 2017 Transition, you will earn between 3 and 10 points per measure based on your participation. These will be compared to the CMS national benchmarks for that measure.
