MIPS reporting solutions

Eligible clinicians billing Medicare Part B have until March 31, 2018 to submit to new quality reporting structures within MACRA’s Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) for the 2017 performance year.

MIPS consists of four combined scoring categories, which most notably includes historical PQRS and Meaningful Use submissions recast as Quality and Advancing Care Information categories.

Overall MIPS scoring consists of:

  • Quality – 60%
  • Cost – not scored for 2017 reporting
  • Improvement Activities – 25%
  • Advancing Care Information – 15%

CMS-recognized MIPS functionality

Philips Wellcentive reporting solutions are recognized and approved by CMS for MIPS quality reporting.

Our Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) and Qualified Registry options are preferred reporting methods for MIPS:

  • Philips Wellcentive’s Outcomes Manager solution embeds QCDR reporting for electronic measures
  • Our MIPS Registry App features Qualified Registry reporting capabilities
  • Both supports individual or group reporting strategies

This flexibility allows clinicians to select any or all MIPS reporting categories – from specific quality reporting to simple attestations such as required in the Improvement Activities category – that match your practice, specialty and MIPS reporting needs.

Review this accompanying slide deck for greater detail on 2017 MIPS reporting, from the “Pick Your Pace” options and requirements to scoring benefits through the use of QCDR.

Bridging PQRS reporting as penalties increase

In terms of quality measure selection and reporting methods, little has changed in the process of moving from PQRS to MIPS Quality. One big change, though, is financial.

Payment adjustments, up or down, increase from 2% to 4% initially, and increase over time. According to CMS, more than 500,000 clinicians will receive a 2% penalty by failing to meet PQRS (2015 reporting for the 2017 payment year) prior to the MIPS transition.
