Announcing leadership and excellence in value-based care
New York eHealth Collaborative Selects HealthEC to Provide MIPS Registry Design and Reporting Services
PISCATAWAY, N.J. - December 12, 2017 - HealthEC today announced that it has been selected by the New York eHealth Collaborative (NYeC) to design its Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) registry and reporting service to support both individual clinicians and provider groups. The new MIPS service will help providers across the state of New York focus on quality, improve the health of patients, and facilitate quality reporting to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS).
MIPS, a component of the new Quality Payment Program under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), represents a shift within the healthcare payment system - basing provider compensation on value rather than volume (fee-for-service). MIPS reporting reflects a clinician’s ability to optimize quality, streamline resource use, continuously improve care delivery processes, and share patient information across providers. Their MIPS scores determine if they receive a positive, neutral, or negative adjustment in Medicare payments.
"We look forward to working with HealthEC to develop a robust, user-friendly MIPS registry to support our reporting services designed to help healthcare providers meet the requirements of CMS’s Quality Payment Program," said Valerie Grey, NYeC's Executive Director. "We're proud to continue to serve as one of New York State's leading resources for healthcare providers, assisting them in delivering high quality, patient-centric care."
"We're proud to partner with NYeC to support MIPS reporting across the state of New York," said Sanjay Seth, M.D., HealthEC Executive Vice President. "Many providers are still confused about the MIPS program and are concerned about meeting all requirements. HealthEC and NYeC will provide the technical expertise and practical know-how to support practices of all sizes in achieving their MIPS goals and succeeding under value based payment models."
