How to Manage the Challenges of MIPS Reporting
Robert Hopton, Chief Executive Officer, and Sarah Reiter, Vice President Strategic Partnerships, both of Health eFilings, will provide insight into the MIPS program, what it means, and what you can do to maximize Medicare reimbursements. Health eFilings, a CEHRT (Certified EHR Technology), is a national leader in MIPS compliance and data management. With its ONC certified software, organizations effectively track and analyze data for population health management initiatives and easily comply with complex CMS programs such as MIPS.

MIPS requires providers to transition from a volume to value-based care model or else face significant financial penalties and even reputational harm. The stakes have been raised every year and it is even more complex than it has been in the past, further increasing the stress, burden and financial risk to providers. Given there are many commonly misunderstood aspects of MIPS and many nuances of how to earn the most points, it can be challenging to know exactly what to do to earn points and protect your reimbursements. It is critical to understand what reporting methods will optimize your MIPS score. And, since the focus is always on the bottom line, it's imperative to know what tangible steps can be taken to increase the financial payouts from the program without requiring any additional resources or time.

Upholding HIPAA Compliance and Streamlining Patient Access to Medical Data in Today’s Digital, Consumer-Driven Environment
Digital innovation is transforming healthcare. Patients expect their medical records to be available through digital formats, including mobile applications and have a growing number of digital tools available to them. In addition to pressure from patients, the federal government has recently made significant movement to make healthcare more consumer-friendly by creating easier access to ePHI through technology and giving patients more control of their health information. These changes represent the modernization of healthcare, and they have a significant impact on compliance regulations and practices.

During this webinar, consider regulatory and patient demands that are transforming healthcare, applying context using women’s breast health as an example. There are digital healthcare tools and resources available to patients and healthcare providers to alleviate burdens of tracking down and sharing breast health records that utilize today’s technology, meet patient expectations, and comply with updated HIPAA regulations.

This session will be particularly informative if you rely on outdated technology like CD’s, and faxes to deliver this data to patients, or if you do not know how your organization shares protected health information. This session will strengthen provider organizations' knowledge regarding government mandates and practice changes to meet increased patient demand to share information in digital formats using secure, HIPAA-compliant channels that will catalyze change while maintaining compliance.
