Quality Improvement for Institutions

Quality Payment Program

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015, commonly referred to as MACRA, introduced a new Medicare physician payment system called the Quality Payment Program (QPP). The program offers two tracks for eligible clinicians to participate in order to receive Medicare payment adjustments under a value-based payment sytem: the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs). To learn more about APMS check out the ACC MACRA Hub.

The Quality Payment Program establishes new ways to reimburse clinicians for caring for Medicare patients, based on value not volume, through the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).

Ease your reporting burden. Free to participate, both registries provide powerful clinical insights to practices, easily capturing valuable data on coronary artery disease, hypertension, heart failure, atrial fibrillation and diabetes in the outpatient setting.

The PINNACLE Registry and the Diabetes Collaborative Registry have jointly self-nominated as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) for the2018 MIPS Program Year. As a QCDR, the registries offer an easy solution for practices to report MIPS for the 2018 program year. Reporting to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is a free benef it to practices currently submitting data via the registries with the benefit of interoperability from most electronic health record (EHR) systems.
