Understanding the new Quality Payment Program – The MIPS track

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) creates a new framework for rewarding providers for better, lower-cost, patient-centered care. MACRA streamlines existing quality reporting programs into one new Quality Payment Program (QPP) with two tracks: the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) or Alternative Payment Model. Beginning in 2017, Eligible Clinicians5 will be required to participate in one of these two tracks.

About 90 percent of Eligible Clinicians will qualify for the MIPS track in 2017. MIPS will combine existing quality programs, Meaningful Use, PQRS, and Value Modifier and add a new category, Clinical Practice Improvement Activities. Eligible Clinicians will be scored and benchmarked against their peers. Your performance in 2017 will affect your 2019 Medicare Part B payments.

Just as we've done for Meaningful Use, PQRS, and Value-based Modifier programs, athenahealth MIPS experts will design workflows to ensure client success and take on data collection and reporting.
