The Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) commences on January 1, 2017. Will you be ready?

The Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) commences on January 1, 2017, dramatically changing the reimbursement environment for professional services. The program features reporting metrics related to your medical practice's operations. After reviewing the new reimbursement program's structure, speaker Elizabeth Woodcock will take a deep dive into two key elements - advancing care information (ACI) and clinical practice improvement activities (CPIA). These categories will formulate a significant portion of your MIPS Composite Performance Score. The former replaces the EHR Incentive Program, and the later is a totally new element influencing Medicare reimbursement.

With only months to go before the program starts, this recorded webinar will ensure that your practice operations are geared up and ready for the new value-based reimbursement landscape.

  • Identify the criteria and reporting period for ACI - the new term for 'meaningful use'.
  • Review the list of improvement activities and reporting requirements defined by CMS for the CPIA category.
  • Develop a plan of action to successfully attest to ACI and CPIA in 2017.
  • Recognize the implications of failing to report the ACI and CPIA elements of the Quality Payment Program.
