MEDIA, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Healthcare Administrative Partners (HAP), a leader in outsourced revenue cycle, coding, and practice management solutions for specialty physician practices, announces the availability of new MIPS Measure Assurance Services that deliver a full suite of tools and support designed to maximize program compliance and protect Medicare reimbursements. A core component of the government’s Quality Payment Program (QPP) that is ushering in a new era of value-based compensation for healthcare providers, the Merit Based Incentive Payment Program (MIPS) involves a complex array of performance categories and associated reporting metrics that can positively or negatively impact a practice’s Medicare payments.
With recent legislation finalizing program rules for the 2017 reporting year and beyond, HAP’s team of revenue cycle experts designed the MIPS Measure Assurance Services to be current with the latest mandates and comprehensive in both the type and depth of support available to the company’s clients.
Core features of MIPS Measure Assurance Services include:
- HAP’s proprietary analytics and Provider Quality Report CardTM that empowers practices to easily assess program performance in-progress, take corrective action as-needed, and eliminate year-end surprises
- Set-up in HAP’s Qualified Registry that enables a standard methodology for MIPS Quality reporting to CMS, both at the group and individual level, and ensures providers can be fully supported by the company’s services
- Creation of a customized Practice Profile that evaluates key metrics in order to help determine the true impact of MIPS on the practice and build a foundation for maximized program performance based on current and changing requirements
- Education and customized support delivered by HAP’s team of proven QPP experts to help physician practices understand the program requirements, including the associated incentives and penalties, in order to produce an action plan for compliance success
