If you are already coding MIPS Quality Measures, you are doing the lion's share of the workload of MACRA. We don't try to take credit for your huge contribution.
Check it out ... in many cases even though you already do the coding, pricing from QCDR / Registry partners often are based on encounter volume. If that is your case, you can save a ton of money for your clients.
We analyze thousands of CQM shortfalls all year long. We have found that the reasons for shortfalls tend to be shortfalls in systems, reporting much more often than in physician non-compliance. Your coding team's expertise will always to a better job in finding those, than some QCDR's automated tools.
Our sophisticated high-value quarterly reporting, delivered via zoom meeting by a knowledgeable Concierge always makes a strong impression. And every report, meeting and conversation contains your name and logo.
MACRA is complicated. Providers and administrators need to know the financial implications of their ongoing scores, compared to their potential financial results they could earn. How else can they evaluate what effort to exert? Our Concierge team evaluates and shares the complex nuances of MACRA, far beyond a simple listing of CQM by provider.
Some QCDR and Registry vendors use technology to make their operations efficient. But if they don't pass on those efficiences to your clients, who benefits?
We have also observed that these technology interfaces are almost impossible to keep current, and as physicians and hospitals upgrade their systems, the QCDR / Registry side starts to lose track of where to find data that supports accurate CQM calculation.
We love technology. But your Human Coders, reviewing physician notes, generate CQM scores that are more accurate and less subject to CMS audit.
For some practices, adding QCDR measures makes a lot of sense. Check out our insights about how to best contract with QCDR, and get the best of both worlds.
