MIPS Update for PY 2023 - 2024

As we gear up for the New Year, we are delighted to share some game-changing updates that will elevate your MIPS reporting experience with Practice EHR.

What is MIPS and How Does it Impact You?

Before we delve into the details of our partnership, let us briefly revisit the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). MIPS is a crucial component of the Quality Payment Program (QPP), designed to reward healthcare providers for delivering high-quality, cost-effective care. Participating in MIPS ensures that you not only meet regulatory requirements but also position yourself for financial incentives and improved patient outcomes.

In-House MIPS Submission and External Registry Collaboration for 2024

Starting in 2024, Practice EHR is proud to announce that we will be facilitating MIPS submission in-house, empowering you with greater control and efficiency in your reporting processes. Additionally, we are excited to support collaboration with external registries for those seeking a broader range of measures to optimize their MIPS performance.

eCQM Support for In-House Reporting:

Our commitment to excellence is reflected in our robust support for Electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs). For the performance year 2024, we are equipped and certified to handle the submission of 9 key eCQMs, each designed to provide a comprehensive view of your practice's performance. The supported eCQMs include:

1. CMS50 - Closing the Referral Loop: Receipt of Specialist Report
