MIPS Education

The Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) streamlines three quality programs, the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), Value-based Payment Modifier (VBM), and Medicare Electronic Health Record Incentive Program (aka Meaningful Use), into one single program.

Why You Need STI’s Clinical EMR for MIPS Webinar

This webinar explained why you need an EMR to achieve MIPS requirements.  In order to avoid 2019 payment penalties under Medicare, certain data needs to be submitted to CMS. This data will need to come from your EMR.  We reviewed our MIPS Assistance Program, which is aimed at supporting you through this process.

This series was held 3 times throughout September and October 2016.  A recorded version of this webinar is available on our YouTube page.

MIPS: Setting Up Quality Measures

This webinar will review the requirements for the Quality Performance Category; provide step by step instructions for setting up quality measures; and discuss how scoring is calculated. The Quality Performance Category is the most heavily weighted category of MIPS making up 60% of the Clinician’s composite score in 2017. We encourage all MIPS Eligible Clinicians who have not signed up for our MIPS Assistance Program to attend.

MIPS: Achieving ACI Objectives and Measures

The Advancing Care Information (ACI) category promotes patient engagement and electronic exchange through the use of certified EHR technology. This category will make up 25% of an eligible clinicians (EC) composite score. Many ECs may be familiar with the components of the ACI category because it is very similar to the Medicare EHR Incentive Program “Meaningful Use.” This webinar will provide you with information on the ACI requirements, how to achieve the measures/objectives and scoring. We encourage all MIPS Eligible Clinicians who have not signed up for our MIPS Assistance Program to attend.
