Is your practice struggling to meet the demands of achieving value-based, high quality care in today’s ever changing world of healthcare? Have you started working towards practice transformation, but are unsure how to handle the next steps to solidify the foundation for patient-centered, value-based care?

The Kentucky REC is here to help with our new and exciting Individual Module Concepts for Practice Transformation.

Not only will this transform your practice, but it can help you prepare for the Patient-Centered Medical Home and Specialty Practice model of care.

You decide which Modules fit your practice and patient needs the best. Or, if you are ready for complete Practice Transformation, we can help with Patient-Centered Medical Home or Specialty Practice transformation and recognition.

QPP WEBINAR JULY 30: PROMOTING INTEROPERABILITY & IMPROVEMENT ACTIVITIES

Performance Year 4, 2020, of the Quality Payment Program (QPP) is just about halfway over! During our July 30th webinar, Kentucky REC experts will discuss the details of the Promoting Interoperability (PI) and Improvement Activities (IA) Performance Categories to help you make informed decisions for improvement. This webinar will be the third and final in our series of performance category deep dives for QPP Y4.

The Promoting Interoperability (PI) Performance Category has maintained its 25% weight of the MIPS final score. Also much of the category remains the same after it went through a substantial overhaul for Y3. One change to note is the reduction to only one bonus opportunity for Y4 of the program. CMS also refined the reweighting flexibilities that allow you to shift some of the raw category points around several objectives and measures.

Additionally, the Improvement Activities (IA) Performance Category aligns very well with processes we are already doing to improve our practices. With the new changes to IA requiring more preparation and planning, we will discuss what you should keep in mind as we move into the second half of the Performance Year, ranging from best practices, to documenting as a large organization, and how to find the right activities for your organization. Let us know if you would like more information on becoming a Kentucky REC client.
