BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Specialty-specific health information technology leader Modernizing Medicine, Inc. today announced that its electronic health record (EHR) system, EMA™, is among the first in the United States to include built-in Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) composite score reporting, robust analytics and benchmarking reports that document healthcare providers’ performance in near real-time.
Modernizing Medicine’s EHR system can calculate how providers perform with a single MIPS composite score that factors in three weighted performance categories: Quality, Advancing Care Information and Clinical Improvement, plus Resource Use coming in 2018. The overall score then indicates performance as measured and compared to peers across a number of different criteria. Providers that exceed the minimum threshold in 2017 can be paid more money versus those that don’t. Providers that do not meet the minimum threshold can receive a substantial reduction in payments from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), in accordance with their new Quality Payment Program that started at the beginning of January 2017.
“Our doctors developed our EHR system to automatically capture all data physicians need at the point of care to build and report their composite MIPS score,” states Michael Sherling, MD, MBA, Chief Medical Officer and co-founder at Modernizing Medicine. “In addition, Modernizing Medicine is a qualified registry and we can submit the MIPS data on our client’s behalf. We believe that no one is more qualified for value-based healthcare than Modernizing Medicine and we can provide our customers with everything they need to achieve MIPS success.”
