Don’t Leave Money on the Table

With PQRS, Meaningful Use, and new incentives there for the taking, there’s significant value-based revenue on the line for providers. The athenahealth Full Value Program protects you from program penalties and helps you bank every incentive dollar you qualify for. You deliver quality care. We make sure you get paid for it.

Avoid the penalties

The Physician Quality Reporting System: This year, more providers than ever are facing penalties for failing to report CMS’ Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS). And with 60% of providers nationwide paying penalties for failing to satisfy their PQRS measures, practices are feeling the pain. 

At athenahealth, our providers are in the clear, with 93.6% of our clients reporting PQRS compliance. 

Meaningful Use Stage 2: The penalties for failing to attest to Meaningful Use are increasing – and the results don’t look good for most providers. In 2014, only roughly 33% of providers nationwide attested to Meaningful Use, leaving the rest to pay penalties. The landscape for athenahealth clients is quite different: 

98.2% of our participating providers successfully attested to Meaningful Use Stage 2 in 2014.

Get paid more with new revenue opportunities

If you’re already managing chronic care or providing transitional care, you should be taking full advantage of higher reimbursements from Medicare through the Chronic Care Management (CCM) or the Transitional Care Management (TCM) programs. There are also substantial incentives in the Value-based Modifier (VM) program that are awarded to providers for high-quality, low-cost care. With athenahealth, you’ll get experts who coach you along the way, so you can get every potential dollar for the care you deliver. It’s all part of the athenahealth Full Value Program. 

We guarantee success with value-based care

We have a unique partnership model where we align our financial incentives with yours. Succeeding in your quality program is our guarantee, because when you do well we do well.
  • We guarantee attestation. We coach you every step of the way on Meaningful Use best practices, and even attest on your behalf. All at no extra charge.
    With the incentive phase of PQRS over, many providers are worried about penalties. For athenahealth providers, there’s nothing to worry about. We guarantee it. 
    We offer the industry’s only ACO guarantee: If you don’t receive MSSP savings, you don’t pay. It’s that simple.
