Accessing & Understanding Your QRUR
Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017, from 12-1:30 p.m. (EST)

In the fall of 2017, CMS will make the 2016 Annual Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRURs) available to all group and solo practitioners subject to the Value Based Payment Modifier, which is identifiable by Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN). The 2016 QRUR shows each TIN how they performed in 2016 on the quality and cost measures used to calculate the 2018 value modifier. Join PHA’s Patty Rose to find out how to access your QRUR, how to interpret and understand how the value modifier will apply to your Medicare Part B payments in 2018, and how to use the information to identify areas to focus improvements as we transition into the Quality Payment Program. Due to the amount of information to be presented, this webinar is scheduled for 90 minutes.

Beyond the Project Plan: Using MIPScast™ to Optimize Your Scoring
Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2017, from 12-1 p.m. (EST)

So you’ve joined the QPP Resource Center, completed your Readiness Assessment and received your Project Plan. Now it’s time to understand your potential MIPS score and what it means to your organization. Join PHA’s Andrew Cabamalan for an overview of MIPScast™, a tool to help you prioritize your quality improvement efforts so they make the greatest impact. It's an interactive web app designed to easily import Quality Measures, calculate points earned, and accurately estimate your Merit-based Incentive Payment System or MIPS Final Score under the QPP.  MIPScast™ provides you with simple score comparisons so you can pick the quality measures, specialty set, and reporting methods (e.g. EHR, Registry, Claims) that yield the highest scores. With usability in mind, MIPScast™ allows you to see which MIPS categories are scoring the highest and lowest, save your work and continue later, and save multiple scoring scenarios for a single practice/clinician. Find out how you can utilize this information to optimize your scoring and place yourself in the position you want to be, whether that be to submit for a neutral payment adjustment or to be a top performer!

*It is recommended that you’ve joined the QPP Resource Center and completed your Readiness Assessment prior to this webinar.  Please see webinars scheduled for October 17th and 25th, or November 14th and 16th.
