Meaningful Use/Merit-Based Incentive Payment System Consulting

Quality Insights has built a team of experienced consultants that has been on the front lines of health information technology, providing on the ground assistance to thousands of providers in EHR adoption, implementation and the successful attestation of EHR Meaningful Use.

Overview

At its core, Meaningful Use (MU) is about using electronic health records (EHRs) to improve the quality, safety and efficiency of health care. Achieving MU requires health care providers to implement certified, fully-functioning electronic medical record systems, thus greatly expanding the quality level of patient care. The measures and reporting periods required to meet MU requirements can prove challenging to even the most computer-savvy provider.
 
With multiple stages of MU in operation, providers need reliable, experienced guidance to help manage the complexities that are sure to surface as they tackle these various stages.

The passing of the Medicare Access & CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) will move providers from MU to being successful with the goals of the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). MIPS will link fee-for-service payments to quality and value. Quality Insights can provide assistance with transforming your practice toward Better Care, Smarter Spending, and Healthier People. Our experienced team can assist practices that are committed to transforming their practices and meeting payment reforms in receiving the financial rewards they have earned.
