The merit-based incentive payment system program
Understand MACRA & MIPSfor your Practice.
Maximize the use of your EHR.
Prepare your practice for MACRA.
As an ONC 2014 Certified EHR, AdvancedMD software meets and satisfies all the MACRA-related requirements. MACRA (Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015) introduces a new value-based reimbursement system called the Quality Payment Program (QPP) with three important changes impacting your Medicare payments.
Repeals the Medicare sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula that calculated payment cuts for physicians.
Creates a new framework for rewarding physicians for providing higher quality care. The two tracks of the QPP are:
- Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS)
- Alternative Payment Models (APMs)
Parts of three existing individual reporting programs are combined into a single system:
- Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS)
- Value-Based Payment Modifier (VBPM)
- Meaningful Use (MU)
Patient Medical Snapshot
The patient chart displays & confirms data such as patient medications, allergies, problem list, smoking status & test results.
Apply Codesets to Note Template Fields
Quality Measures are calculated using ICD-10, CPT, LOINC & SNOMED codes.
Make patient engagement fun & secure with patient communications via messaging, plus patients can review their CCD.
Protocols to simplify the CDS requirements with rule-based alerts including gender, problem list, test results & note field values.
Clinical Patient Listing
Lets you generate reports of patients based on gender, age, problem/diagnosis & test results.
Patient Data Storage
Once entered into the electronic chart, patient data is retained helping you meet the MACRA objectives.
Link to your favorite educational websites & share the information with your patients.
Understand the definition of MIPS.
MIPS (Merit-based Incentive Payment System) is a scoring program measuring an eligible clinicians performance to weigh their Medicare Part B payment adjustments, these adjustments may be positive, negative or neutral. The MIPS payment adjustments are applied two years after the performance year with January 1, 2017 proposed as the first year for the MIPS program. The payment adjustments will be applied in CY2019.
Learn the first year performance category weights for MIPS.
(formerly PQRS/CQMs) – 60%
Advancing Care Information
ACI (formerly MU) – 25%
Attest to 4 required measures, and 7 optional or 2 bonus measures, for a minimum of 90 days
(aka from proposed rule CPIA) – 15%
Complete 2 – 4 improvement activities for a minimum of 90 days
Take a closer look at APMs.
CMS proposes an approach to implementing the MACRA APM track where eligible clinicians can become “qualifying participants” & earn incentives for participation. Advanced APMs must meet three proposed requirements deriving from the MACRA statute:
- Required use of a certified EHR
- Payment for covered professional services based on comparable quality measures
- Either being an enhanced medical home or bearing more than “nominal risk” for losses
AdvancedMD meets EHR regulations with less hassle for you.
AdvancedMD is committed to providing private practices with everything you need to successfully meet EHR regulations for MACRA. Not only will you be able to meet regulatory requirements, but you will also use a best-in-class EHR to optimize your clinical charting & patient engagement.
EHR features help you achieve MACRA.
We’ve integrated tracking right within our EHR software to help automate & simplify the complexities of meeting MU requirements.
Now that MACRA’s proposed rule is final, we will soon provide a dashboard to track your ACI (Advancing Care Information) measures that were inherited from the MU measures.
Simplified MIPS when using telemedicine.
Telemedicine can be a key component in maximizing your MIPS CPIA performance category score. CPIA subcategories, including telehealth activities, are Expanded Practice Access (24/7 access, expanded hours, use of alternatives such as telemedicine to increase access to care) and Population Health Management (monitoring health conditions, medication management).
