We have the tools.
Meditab's Intelligent Medical Software (IMS) is prepared to handle the new framework of MACRA/MIPS so you will successfully transition toward value-based care.
Unlike other EHRs, IMS supports all MIPS measures, so there's no limit to what goals you want to set for your practice. With features designed specifically for QPP, IMS is your perfect partner to achieving better clinical outcomes and having healthier patients.
QPP: Payment Management Software
With a straightforward and well designed dashboard like ours, tracking your performance in the Quality, Advancing Care Information, and Improvement Activities categories of MIPS is absolutely hassle-free.
Easily generate MIPS reports, check your compliance status, check your current scores, and even see the performance of each provider in your clinic. The best part is you will do all of these on just one screen.
MIPS Measures Setup
With IMS, you will indicate how many measures (and specify which ones) you want to meet for each MIPS category.
We have the team.
We offer more than just a progress tracker and an incentive calculator. In addition to our powerful QPP-specific tools, we have a dedicated QPP specialist assigned to assist you all throughout the reporting period.
We've got you covered from start to finish, and here's how our QPP team does it:
Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS)
25% Promoting Interoperability
15% Clinical practice improvement activities
15% Resource Use
MIPS eligible clinicians are required to participate and submit their data to avoid -9% of payment adjustment.
2020 Performance Flexibility
Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, clinicians can file for exceptions and use the Extreme and Uncontrollable Circumstances policy to allow clinicians, groups, and virtual groups to submit application requisitions of one or more MIPS performance categories.
For the 2020 performance year, the Quality Performance Category will be worth 45% of your final score. Eligible Clinicians (ECs) must select 6 individual measures of which 1 must be an outcome measure or a high priority measure.
- If less than 6 measures apply, then ECs will report on each applicable measure. Eligible Clinicians may also select a specialty specific of measures
- Small practice bonus of 6 points for MIPS eligible clinicians in small practices who submit data on at least 1 quality measure. A small practice is defined as 15 or fewer eligible clinicians
- You can also receive up to 10 additional percentage points based on your improvement in the Quality performance category from the previous year.
2020 performance year requires a 70% data completeness threshold
- Measures that do not meet the data completeness criteria earn 1 point. Small practices continue to receive 3 points
- Updated the definition of high priority measures to include opioid related measures.
Promoting Interoperability (PI) Measures.
CMS has eliminated the base and performance scoring previously use and went to a New performance-based scoring with four objectives and a maximum of 100 category points.
The four Objectives are:
1. e-Prescribing (with 1 bonus measures) (10 points)
- Query of Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) (5 bonus points)
2. Health Information Exchange which has two parts. (40 points total)
- Support Electronic Referral Loops by sending Health Information (20 points)
- Support Electronic Referral Loops by receiving ad incorporating Health Information (20 points)
3. Provider to Patient Exchange (40 points)
- Provide Patients Electronic Access to their Health Information (40 points)
4. Public Health and Clinical Data Exchange (10 points)
- Immunization Registry Reporting
- Electronic Case Reporting
- Public Health Registry Reporting
- Clinical Data Registry Reporting
- Syndromic Surveillance Reporting
|Objective||Measures||Maximum Points||Numerator / Denominator||Performance Rate||Score|
|E-Prescribing||E-Prescribing||10 points||200/250||80%||10 x 0.8 = 8 points|
|Health Information Exchange||Support Electronic Referrals Loop by Sending Health Information||20 points||135/185||73%||10 x 0.73 = 15 points|
|Support Electronic Referral Loops by Receiving and Incorporating Health Information||20 points|
|Provider to Patient Exchange||Provide Patients Electronic Access to their Health Information||40 points||350/500||70%||40 x 0.70 = 28 points|
|Public Health and Clinical Data Exchang||Immunization Registry Public Health Registry reporting||10 points||Yes/Yes||N/A||10 points|
|Total||78 points will equal 19 performance points|
Improvement Activities (IA) Measures.
For the 2020 reporting, to satisfy this category, ECs can either: attest to completing up to 4 medium-weighted activities or attest to 2 high-weighted activities or attest to 1 high-weighted and 2 medium-weighted activities for a minimum of 90 days. High weighted-activities receive 20 points and medium-weighted activities receive 10 points.
Clinicians with special statuses will receive double points for each high-weighted or medium-weighted activity submitted. They include:
- Small practice
- HPSA providers
- Non-patient Facing
Practices that are certified patient-centered medical home (PCMH) will earn the maximum Improvement Activity performance category.
For group reporting, 50% of the clinicians in the group need to attest in performing the same activity during the 90-day period.
CMS also added a new high-weighted activity, COVID-19 Clinical Trials.
Cost Performance Category.
The Quality MIPS performance category will count for 15% of the total CPS for the 2020 performance period. The 2022 payment adjustment period will be based on your data submitted during the 2020 reporting period.
Cost Measure Case Minimums
- Case minimum of 20 for Total per Capita Cost measure and 35 for MSPB
- Case minimum of 20 for acute inpatient medical condition episodes
- Case minimum of 10 for procedural episodes
|MIPS Performance Periods by Category|
|12 months||90 days||90 days||12 months|
The size of your payment will depend both on how much data you submit and your performance results.

- Report between January 1 and October 3, 2020 for your 90-day reporting.
- Report between January 1 and December 31, 2020 for your 1 whole year reporting.
- Submission Period January 1 to March 31, 2021
- Performance data is due by March 31, 2021.

Dr. Becky Buelow of Allergy Care (Wisconsin)
"Well, we're so glad to have your team, you're so easy to work with, we both enjoy working with you, and you're all very knowledgeable. Thank you for your help today."
Ranjan Patel, Administrator at Heartland Cardiology
"The IMS team that has helped our practice the past few years with PQRS. We feel that this team assigned to our practice has been of such importance to us in getting all of the measures completed prior to the deadlines. They have helped us understand the measures for PQRS and pick and choose which measures are of importance to our practice in the reporting to Medicare. We surely would not have been able to complete this task of getting through PQRS with out all of their help."
Jatinder Dhaliwal, Office Manager of Gastroenterology Consultants of Polk County
"You guys are all great as a team. I have known you for years now and never had a problem. Thank you so much for all your help and services."
