Myth 1 – The EHR Does MIPS for Us

Today’s podcast will weigh how Electronic Health Records rely on the involvement of personnel to completely and accurately obtain the necessary information for the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System. The myth, “Our EHR does MIPS for us” examines the relationship between technology and human interaction. We address the physical attributes of data collection, personnel training, and marked improvement to understand how EHRs and clinical staff rely on each other to meet the ever-changing requirements of participating in the Quality Payment Program.

Important points of view discussed are:

  • Selecting metrics for MIPS
  • Monitoring ongoing improvement of those metrics
  • Managing the constantly changing requirements, scoring, and deadlines
  • Clinical staff engagement in obtaining critical data for performance

This episode features Quest Quality Consulting experts, Erika Krivenko, Julia Zeiger, and Carrie Shepard.
