  • MIPS is complicated. We make it easier.

    Navigating MIPS can be stressful, even if you’re a seasoned LTPAC practitioner. Here are some basics to get you started.

  • What is MIPS?

    The Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) program leverages and augments PQRS, Value-Based Modifier (VBM) and Meaningful Use requirements into a cohesive program. MIPS will also include the introduction of a new reporting category, Improvement Activities.

  • When will the payment adjustments from MIPS begin?

    The payment adjustments will begin in 2020; however, the payment adjustment schedule will be based on 2018 performance scores (scores will be positive, zero, or negative).

  • How is the budget supported for MIPS?

    MIPS is a budget-neutral program. The incentives are funded by the penalties incurred by other eligible clinicians.

  • What are the MIPS Components and Weights?

    MIPS will become increasingly more difficult in the subsequent years. While Improvement Activities and Advancing Care information weights remain constant, Quality decreases and Resource Use weight increases significantly over time.

     

    Year: 2020*

    • Quality: 50%
    • Resource Use: 10%
    • Improvement Activities: 15%
    • Advancing Care Information: 25%

    *Based on calendar year (CY) 2018 participation

     

    Year: 2021**

    • Quality: 30%
    • Resource Use: 30%
    • Improvement Activities: 15%
    • Advancing Care Information: 25%

    **Based on CY 2019 Participation

  • What is the Advancing Care Information (ACI) hardship exemption?

    If clinicians face significant hardship and are unable to report ACI measures, they can apply to have their ACI performance category score weighted to zero. However, doing so will increase the Quality component weight from 50% to 75%.

  • Are the MIPS performance scores made publically available?

    Yes. The MIPS Eligible Clinician’s performance scores are publicly available on the CMS Physician Compare website.

  • What are the requirements for end-to-end electronic reporting?

    • Use a CEHRT to recorded the measure’s demographic and clinical data elements.
    • Export and transmit the measure data electronically to a third party. The third party, such as a registry, uses automated software to aggregate the measure data, calculate measures, perform any filtering of measurement data, and submit the data electronically to CMS.

     

    GEHRIMED is both a Qualified Registry and a QCDR.

Testimonials from our Customers

"It essentially pays for itself… Overall, it’s a much better system, it’s much more efficient, and it honestly makes everyone’s lives easier."

-Dr. Jim Demidovich - HealthCare Providers, LLC

"We did really well last year with GEHRIMED. We got 100 percent of what we should have gotten without going back and updating data."

-Dr. Art Gendelman - Carespring NP, LLC

GEHRIMED does a great job. I love this software and I think that our documentation is so fabulous compared to what we used to do. The templates are great, and it really makes the quality measures easy to complete.

-Dr. Karen Hoyt - Pioneer Continuing Care Providers

"It really does help us function and take care of a very high-complex population of people who have so many issues that most physicians aren’t paying attention to. Our care in our facilities is actually better than the hospital’s care and the family practice’s care because we’re more focused on this population and very sick individuals, and GEHRIMED helps us accomplish that."

-Dr. Christine Weller - Weller Health Transitions, LLC
