CAHPS for MIPS in 2017

Webinar graphic for CAHPS for MIPS

Before this year, you had to mind your P’s and Q’s (and R’s and S’s). Now you need to make the flip to CAHPS for MIPS. Don’t flip out. Just tune in to our webcast.

This is not fake news: Under the Quality Payment Program, CAHPS for PQRS (the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers & Systems for the Physician Quality Reporting System) is transitioning to CAHPS for MIPS (the Merit-based Incentive Payment System). If you were cool with PQRS, you’ll be comfortable with MIPS, especially with help from PRC (Professional Research Consultants, Inc.). It really will be deja vu all over again. The names have changed, but the game’s the same: Helping you focus on quality care to make patients healthier.

Don’t “MIPS” this opportunity to get a close-up look at the newly renamed survey designed for use by eligible clinicians billing more than $30,000 a year and providing care for more than 100 Medicare beneficiaries annually.

PRC’s MIPS prep work has been meticulous, and we’re ready to help you meet the September 19 deadline for submitting online vendor authorizations to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). PRC is proud to be an approved CAHPS for MIPS vendor in the survey’s inaugural year, and we want to put our experience in helping clients improve performance to work for you. All you have to do is click on the replay button above, register, and tune in to:

  1. A brief program summary outlining elements of the transition from PQRS to MIPS
  2. A review of eligibility requirements and sampling protocols
  3. A look at the administrative timeline
  4. An overview of public reporting
  5. An explanation of performance category transition year weights
