QPP Resource Center Indiana

About the Program

The QPP Resource Center® for the Midwest is funded by CMS to provide help to eligible clinicians in small practices to participate in the Quality Payment Program. From 2017-2022, the QPP Resource Center™ for the Midwest aims to help 35,000+ clinicians in Indiana and six other states prepare for and successfully participate in the new Quality Payment Program (QPP). The QPP was created by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) to determine levels of Medicare reimbursement for individual clinicians through a new, value-based system.

As a coalition member of the MACRA Provider Resource Network (M-PRN),  Purdue Healthcare Advisors brings direct support to approximately 2,900 MIPS-eligible, Indiana-based clinicians to help them choose and report on quality measures. PHA has knowledge and expertise in practice transformation, legislation, resources, and technology to help clinicians understand what is required for MACRA and why. You can use the MIPScast® score prediction tool as a CMS-approved Qualified Registry (QR) data reporting option.

QPP Indiana Help Desk

Participants have access to the QPP Indiana Help Desk staffed by PHA subject-matter experts who are available to assist you with any MIPS questions or concerns from Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. (EST), by phone, email or chat except on Purdue University-designated holidays and closures.
