CMS continues to raise its game to encourage meaningful participation and improve patient outcomes. Substantial adjustments to the rules have been made to achieve these goals. This means that reporting for MIPS may become more challenging every year. Although the previous results are encouraging, some clinicians still have reservations about whether to participate or opt-out of the program. Are you still hesitant, or are you participating this year? Either way, your practice needs to know more about MIPS.
To get you through another reporting year, we’ve listed the challenges you have to prepare for this 2020:
- Difficulty aligning MIPS with your existing workflows
- Unnecessary redundancies and work without the proper tools
- Too many choices when it comes to selecting and reporting on MIPS measures
- The need to have dedicated staff to monitor data and implement quality improvement programs.
- Some measures may feel unattainable
