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.

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.
