MIPS Measures Matter
Like it or Not, Your Future is NOW
Finally Friday! Broadcasts are Sponsored by
The Health Law Partners, ZirMed,
and The Fifth National Physician Advisor and
Utilization Review Boot Camp
THIS WEEK, we are looking at the impact of MIPS Quality Measure selection, implementation, monitoring, and data collection. Yeah – you’re doing all this for all the physicians in your system, right?
Sharon Easterling is going over the measure for “Diabetes A1C Poor Control NQF: 0059” – just one of the 297 Quality Measures in total, or one of the 37 Measures to choose from in the Specialty Measure Set for Internal Medicine. (Your mileage may vary based upon your Specialty of course.) Now, identifying what Measure you may select from is actually pretty easy. The hard part is the rest of the story… and the especially hard part is the FACT that CODING is the basis of these measurements… and whether you know it or not, not all codes hit the measures! Ok, so that’s the simple explanation, but Sharon will be going over the details for you… And remember this is just ONE measure.
OH, and one question we have for all of you: Are your Physicians coding?
(Because if they are, you really should be rethinking that! No offense to Physicians, it’s just that coding is pretty tricky stuff, yeah?)
Be SURE to join us when our Panel will be discussing :
- WHAT is the 3rd Grade Math problem that CMS wants you to solve?
- WHAT are limitations on ICD-10-CM, CPT & HCPCS codes to be counted?
- WHY do YOU have to do this instead of CMS?
- HOW does physician documentation figure into all this? Again?
- WHAT are the Top Ten Regrets Tom Price has since becoming Secretary?
So join us, share your own insights and bring your questions for us!
