Near-constant policy changes—along with huge time commitments, operational costs, and financial risks—make it challenging to comply with quality reporting requirements. We make your quality reporting operational responsibilities easier by assisting with Meaningful Use and the Quality Payment Program—Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Alternative Payment Models (APM).
This presentation decodes changes to the complex Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and the Advanced Alternative Payment Model (APM) requirements, provides advice on program management, reporting alignment, and how to leverage health IT to achieve success.
This tool helps you assess your potential Medicare penalty if a hospital does not successfully demonstrate "meaningful use" (MU) of certified electronic health record technology (CEHRT) based on the PI program requirements for a particular year.
This is a primer on MACRA’s Quality Payment Program to help new staff get up to speed on the program’s history, current requirements, and challenges.
Our audit checklists, while not exhaustive, serve as a reference for the type of information organizations may wish to keep in their Book of Evidence. We expect that providers will supply information from this Book of Evidence specific to the type of audit request received.

MACRA fundamentally changes how providers are paid under Medicare and establishes two payment tracks under the Quality Payment Program (QPP). Providers in the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) track can use the year-by-year resources on this page to refine their strategy, ensure compliance, improve performance, and prepare for audits.
