QPP YEAR 5 WEBINAR MARCH 24 – QUALITY PERFORMANCE: APPLYING DATA VALIDATION TECHNIQUES

We are already nearing the end of the first quarter of the 2021 QPP, so it’s a critical time to focus your attention on the Quality Performance Category. Quality bears 40% of the total MIPS score for most Eligible Clinicians (ECs), and even higher for some. It’s important that this category begins on the right foot in order to try and maximize the highest MIPS score as possible.

As you begin digging in to Quality, it is important to have accurate and precise data. This is so you will have trust and confidence in the data. When you are confident in the data, then you are able to build the pieces to your Quality Improvement foundation.

In our last Client Only webinar, we covered the topic of Data Validation as a systematic approach to verify data. This can help to make sure you have data integrity so you don’t have to worry if your data is: inaccurate/unreliable; irretrievable; incomplete; or unverifiable.

Join our panel of experts to learn how to validate Quality data, apply different techniques, and learn about a Data Validation tool you can use to aide with the process of Quality validation.
