Each year since 2009, we have been endorsed as a CMS endorsed registry. We just received CMS designation as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry for physical and occupational therapists. We are ready for Merit-based Incentive Payment System reporting year 2019.
Every year we sit on pins and needles awaiting CMS endorsement. We did our happy dance recently when we received word that we were again approved; we are a Qualified Clinical Data Registry for MIPS reporting year 2019.
Our registry will work seamlessly with CMS. Our registry will pull information from your electronic medical record and Outcomes Manager. You will easily validate your Improvement Activities. The registry will report both Quality and Improvement Activities via an Application Programming Interface to CMS. In other words, all the entities involved in reporting information all talk the same language so that you have very little manual work to participate and report.
You are immediately set for success with our registry because we have a few important features that increase your chances for being rewarded for your care. Our registry includes a list of 19 MIPS Clinical Quality Measures. Because the options are more extensive than other registries, you have a much better chance of success. CMS will choose your top 6 quality measure scores. Physical and occupational therapists will need to report both quality and improvement activities. Our registry will submit for both of these categories. Our registry will also include a dashboard so that you will be able to monitor your reporting and ensure that you are meeting all requirements.
The health care world is going full throttle electronic. Software systems are being built to communicate and interact with each other. Your success will depend upon technology and automating some aspects of your day-to-day activities. For value based purchasing and quality payment programs, eOutcomes are front and center. In order to have the most accurate information about your patients and your clinical outcomes, you no longer have the luxury of time, data entry mistakes or lack of risk adjustment. You need to know at a glance your real-time performance. Future success depends on electronic outcomes. Now is the time to get your workflows in place so that you don’t have to worry about quality payment programs. Data will be immediately captured and reported while you worry about more important things: your patients.
