The biggest thing to impact health IT since meaningful use is the new MACRA regulation. In fact, the MACRA regulation stops the SGR fixed that was required annually and rolls in a number of major healthcare programs into one “streamlined” program. If you’re not aware of MACRA, you need to learn. MACRA rolls up the popular PQRS, Meaningful Use (Medicare EHR Incentive Program), the Value Based Modifier into one program called MIPS (it also adds another program to the mix as well).
In order to catch you up to speed on the regulation, we’ve partnered with 4Med to offer a PQRS/CQM/MIPS Project Manager course (CPHP) that will start September 7th. This is a live online course, but each of the sessions will be recorded so you can watch them later in case you miss the live course.
This CPHP Certification workshop provides comprehensive guidance for project managers, practice managers, consultants, eligible professionals (providers) and group practices to understand and participate in the Physician Quality Reporting System and Clinical Quality Measures Program. The course describes 2016 reporting, individual measures and group measures, and the four main reporting categories. The course also includes a PQRS/MIPS action plan.
As part of our partnership with 4Med, we’re able to offer $100 Discount off this course to Healthcare IT Today readers. The discount will be applied automatically if you use one of the links on Healthcare IT Today to register. Register Now and make sure you’re up to date on the latest details with PQRS, CQM, and MIPS.
