A MIPS Qualified Registry is one of the collection types to submit data on behalf of clinicians. In 2020, CMS recognizes P3Care as a MIPS registry for the fourth time in a row since 2017. In an effort to maximize incentives for physicians, we work to produce the best MIPS results for eligible clinicians to seal their authority as value-based clinicians.
From day one, it is our motto to encourage clinicians to do their MIPS data submissions as early as possible and not delaying them to the very end. Because at the very end, it becomes difficult to recognize and omit errors with less time on our hands.
In this article, some of the factors directly related to MIPS 2019 reporting are highlighted comprehensively. To have a go at it without any ambiguities, we have organized information to help you report the year 2019 in a winning way. You get to score high; incentives come with performance as if it were meant to be yours in the first place.
Submission Type & Collection Type
As students of the value-based care phenomenon, we have often noticed at times that we confuse a collection type with a submission type. So, in this section, we’d like to get some weight off our chest by discussing them.
A submission type is a doorway to report MIPS 2019 to CMS. Such methods include –
- Medicare Part B Claims
- Certified Electronic Health Record Technology (CEHRT)
- Qualified Clinical Data Registries (QCDRs)
- Qualified Registry (Like P3 Healthcare Solutions)
- CMS Web Interface
- CAHPS for MIPS Reporting Survey Vendor
While collection types are types of measures MIPS eligible clinicians can use to submit data. For instance, you can use the following types of measures to report MACRA MIPS.
- Electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs)
- MIPS CQMs or Registry Measures
- QCDR measures
- Claims measures
- CAHPS for MIPS survey
Improve Your MIPS 2019 Measures Performance Reporting by P3 Healthcare Solutions
It seems odd but you still have time to edit, delete or replace it with more accurate data. As a third-party intermediary, we have our agents dedicated to these corrections on behalf of clinicians to make their lives easier if their previous submissions were inadequate.
At least six Quality performance measures have to be reported to fulfil MIPS 2019 Quality component requirement. If the same Quality measure is reported multiple times through the same collection type, then CMS will evaluate only the most recently submitted data for that measure.
Similarly, when a single measure is reported using multiple collection types, CMS uses the measure with the highest achievement points. Hence, the scoring system works in favor of the clinicians no matter what one thinks.
P3 Healthcare Solutions works to benefit clinicians, therefore, if you think your data can be more accurate, get in touch with us and we’ll help you optimize your MIPS final scores. Report MIPS 2019 for each category including Promoting Interoperability (PI) and Improvement Activities (IA) like a pro.
For Improvement Activities, the process of aggregation occurs for the activity submitted via attestation, file upload, and/or direct reporting.
For PI, we suggest using a single mode of submission. If CMS receives conflicting data from various submission methods, it will automatically result in a score of 0 for this performance category. We advise each of you, clinicians, to be careful while reporting PI in 2019.
Last Date of Submission is March 31, 2020
In order to report, edit or delete your previously submitted data, new data is acceptable until March 31, 2020, before 8 p.m. EDT. It feels great to be part of the MIPS 2019 reporting system because up to 5% of incentives and reputation on Physician Compare are waiting for you on the other side.
All we require is your NPI; phone number; practice’s name; and 5-10 minutes of your time to discuss and finalize measures. You can also choose from one of our affordable packages, to achieve a score you prefer the most. Packages include MIPS Essential, MIPS Budget Neutral, and Benchmark MIPS.
To talk to us, you can call us for a free consultation on this number: 1-844-557-3227. We wrote an article specifically on the Quality performance category a few months ago in which we discussed some quality measures in detail.
