2019 MIPS Proposed Rule: Key Highlights

By Erin Heilman. Posted Jul 20, 2018 in MACRA/MIPS Program, Academy, Quality Reporting

What’s in store for year three of the Quality Payment Program (QPP)? Last week, CMS dropped the 2019 QPP proposed rule. In addition to focusing on improving patient care by greatly reducing paperwork requirements for clinicians, it includes some major MIPS changes such as removing several process-based quality measures, overhauling the newly named Promoting Interoperability category and modifying technical requirements. Keep in mind that these are just the proposed changes. The final rule will come out in late fall.

If you don’t have time to read through the full 1,473-page proposed rule (…because you have a life and stuff), check out the links below for a few helpful summaries and breakdowns of the proposed QPP changes:

Remember (shameless plug alert), when you partner with a MIPS vendor like Medisolv, our clinical experts can work closely with you—every step of the way—to help you gain a better understanding of the changes to MIPS and guide you through a successful MIPS submission year after year.

QUALITY REPORTING: 2018 AND BEYOND

Tying payments to performance across quality and cost dimensions requires robust measurement and reporting. Hospitals and providers, however, are demanding relief from regulatory burdens including quality reporting. What gives?

In response to both internal needs and external pressures, CMS continues to propose dramatic changes in its Quality Reporting programs. While this session will primarily focus on these hospital and ambulatory changes for quality reporting in 2018, future reporting trends and lessons applicable across the continuum of care will also be discussed. In addition, we’ll share some strategies that will help you to better manage multiple measure types for the major regulatory reporting programs.

Objectives

  • Review 2018 reporting requirements and discuss future trends in quality reporting. 
  • Gain insight into what quality reporting is likely to look like beyond 2018. 
  • Learn strategies to help you stay on top of the complex and changing reporting requirements year after year.
