Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) for Internal Medicine

Work with Able Health to track performance for MIPS and submit data to CMS

The first performance period for the Medicare Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) began January 1, 2017. With CMS combining multiple Medicare Part B programs into one performance-based payment system, provider organizations must stay on top of requirements in order to maintain and increase Medicare payments over the next decade. Able Health can greatly reduce the administrative cost of participating in MIPS and help you improve performance in order to maximize your payment adjustment.MIPS is a budget-neutral program with an additional $500 million pool allocated for exceptional performers. Providers who prepare ahead of their peers will be able to earn higher payment adjustments and bonuses

Track performance using patient-level data

Able Health calculates quality measures using patient-level data from EHRs, claims, and other sources. Easily enter performance data for Cost, Advancing Care Information, and Improvement Activities to track your MIPS Composite Performance Score over time. If you are participating in a MIPS APM, Able Health can replace MIPS measures with applicable measures from your APM.

Educate your team about MIPS as they use the product

In-app tooltips and articles explain how measures are calculated, how to form a valid quality measure set, how the Composite Score is calculated, and more—when and where you need it. Our guidance can reduce the cost of training, time to research requirements, and the negative impact of potential mistakes.

Improve performance with care tools

Identify clinicians and patients who need your attention—and take action to improve performance. Deliver scorecards to clinicians, including patient-level measure results and EHR source records. Generate call lists of patients who need care, including specific actions required for each patient.

Submit directly to CMS

Submit data across the four performance categories to CMS via the Able Health Qualified Registry. When you track performance throughout the year, end-of-year reporting becomes a simpler—and cheaper—task.
