The Health Services Advisory Group and the California Health Information Partnership & Services Organization (CalHIPSO) are hosting a free educational webinar on Thursday, October 4, 2018, on the Medicare Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). This webinar will cover what you and your practice need to know as you look forward to MIPS reporting for the 2018 performance year.
There are many factors to consider that effect your scores. The 2018 reporting year is very similar to 2017, with slightly higher thresholds and benchmarks. The webinar will explore various scenarios and the impact each decision has to clinicians and groups including:
- Maintaining the course: What happens if you don’t change anything from 2017?
- Reviewing the MIPS categories: Which ones will deliver the highest value to your practice and have a positive impact on your MIPS performance?
- Changing the objectives and measures you focus on: How do you know which ones will deliver the highest value and whether you meet the minimum requirements?
- Doing ok with MIPS today? Keep an eye on 2019. Are you establishing the foundation necessary to hit the ground running in 2019 when MIPS gets real?
The California Medical Association was a founding member of CalHIPSO, which was established in 2009 as a federally designated Regional Extension Center to provide education, outreach and technical assistance to help physicians select and implement electronic health records.
