‘Tis the season for MIPS! We know this can be a stressful time of year, but using a CMS approved Qualified Registry such as MDinteractive can simplify your MIPS reporting and help you cross it off your to-do list. Not only can registries help you stay on top of the changing rules each year, but they can also provide useful tools to simplify the reporting process so you reach your MIPS goals. In this article we have listed some of the top reasons to consider using a registry like MDinteractive and the ways in which we can make your MIPS reporting less stressful.
Benefits of Using a CMS Qualified Registry Such as MDinteractive
- One-Stop MIPS Shopping. MDinteractive provides a one-stop solution for submitting all of your MIPS data: Quality, Promoting Interoperability and Improvement Activities. This streamlined approach makes it easier to track all of your data and estimated MIPS scores in one place so you can stay focused on reaching your reporting goals. And while you do not submit any data for the Cost category, we can help you access your prior Cost scores and analyze your Cost data.
- Quality Measures for Every Specialty. There are 232 Quality measures available through a registry like MDinteractive versus fewer measures available when reporting via other submission methods (for example, just 50 measures can be reported through an EHR in 2019). This makes it easier to find measures that are clinically relevant to your practice and specialty. We offer several ways to search for measures that are right for you:
- Search the full list of Quality measures
- View measures relevant to your specialty
- Find customized suggestions in your MDinteractive account based on prior Medicare billing data
