MACRA and MIPS Training – Virtual Bootcamp
Virtual Boot Camp 2017

MACRA is a game-changer, and it’s here to stay. Medicare’s former system for paying providers, PQRS, was a “pay for reporting” program, but MACRA’s Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) is a “pay for performance” program. The government rules surrounding MIPS are confusing, and it doesn’t help to have a consultant paraphrase them for you.

As a healthcare delivery organization, your first and foremost focus is on healthcare, not on regulations or EHR technology. The key difference between this boot camp and any number of other events on the same subject is that we have turned the subject of MIPS inside out and upside down to present it to you from a hands-on, practical point of view, in terms of what you need to do right now to succeed. We will educate you on how MIPS scores your practice for quality, which measures to select and what reporting options to rely on. Our team’s expertise combines the three domains of healthcare, regulations and EHR technology, with the goal of guiding you to success as you embark on your practice’s MIPS journey.

Accountable care organizations (ACOs) and other Advanced Alternative Payment Model (APM) entities are an alternative approach to MIPS, and we will walk you through the pros and cons of participating in these alternative payment models as well.
Session Details
Session 1: MACRA, QPP, MIPS and APMs Rules of the Game

Speaker: Mike Schmidt | Length: 60 minutes

This session will provide an overview of MACRA, QPP, MIPS and APMs from the practical point of view of playing the game. Mike will show you how to optimize your score, and thus maximize your future Medicare reimbursements. He will also focus on MIPS Advancing Care Information (ACI), CPIA and quality scoring, as well as the difference between MIPS APMs vs. advanced APMs tracks.
Session 2: MIPS Jump Start: What to Do Right Now

Speaker: Mike Schmidt | Length: 60 minutes

Based on the lessons learned in the first session, the second session outlines in a practical, step-by-step approach what a practice must do right now to get started. Mike will help you develop a tailored action plan that will give you confidence in knowing what you must do to succeed. This session will help you to analyze your practice’s past performance, plan for the MIPS transition performance period, and then execute on those plans.
Session 3: Successfully Implementing Clinical Practice Improvement Activities in Your Practice

Speaker: Quentella Middleton | Length: 60 minutes

MIPS Clinical Practice Improvement Activities (CPIA) performance is a new and confusing topic. CMS requires the eligible clinician to report only which activities are implemented, and there are no thresholds to meet this requirement. The activities covered by CPIA can be improved from both from a qualitative or quantitative point of view, and eligible clinicians must document the activities in detail in order to prepare for audits.
Session 4: Efficient and Secure Use of CEHRT for Advancing Care Information

Speaker: Lora Woltz | Length: 60 minutes

Are you wondering how your practice can achieve success with MIPS while maintaining your compliance with the privacy requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)? HIPAA rules and regulations directly affect how Certified Electronic Health Record Technology (CEHRT) may be used.
