MIPS 2017: Avoid a 4% Medicare Reimbursement Decrease

As the first year of MIPS reporting comes to an end, healthcare practices and providers don’t have much time left to learn about the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System and how it will affect their revenue and credibility. To make things simpler, I have put together some of the most frequently asked questions about MIPS.

How do I know if I am required to report?

Physicians (MD/DO and DMD/DDS), Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Clinical Nurse Specialists, and Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists that bill Medicare are required to report for 2017. If you meet any of the below exclusion criteria, you are not MIPS-eligible:

  • You are newly enrolled in Medicare.
  • You see 100 or fewer Medicare Part B patients per year.
  • You have less than or equal to $30,000 allowed Medicare Part B charges annually.
  • You are on the participant list for a model that CMS has deemed an Advanced Alternative Payment Model (AAPM).

Look up your participation status here with your NPI:

https://qpp.cms.gov/participation-lookup

 

What happens if I don’t report at all?

If you are an eligible clinician who chooses to not participate in the MIPS program, you will face a 4% decrease in your Medicare payments in 2019. These payment adjustments will become greater every year, with a maximum penalty of 9% of your Medicare reimbursement. Additionally, every clinician’s score is publicly displayed on the Medicare Physician Compare website, for everyone to see. Having a low MIPS score can cost you patients, as well as can undermine your credibility with insurance payers.

What measures should I report on?

It is recommended that you choose measures that are most representative of your practice, such as those that apply to the patients you see or the procedures that you perform frequently to ensure you have a minimum of 20 cases. If possible, avoid reporting on quality measures that most clinicians generally perform well on across the board, because you may have to achieve nearly the highest possible score on the measure to receive more than the minimum number of points for that measure.

I am part of a group practice, what is the difference between reporting as an individual and reporting as a group?

For some multi-specialty practices, it may make more sense to report individually so that different quality or Improvement Activity measures may be used that will best fit each specialty. Also, in instances where individual performance may otherwise be unknown, individual reporting may be beneficial to ensure that bonuses or penalties are properly applied to individual physicians, rather than to the group as a whole.

On the other hand, reporting as a group may be easier than reporting individually. For practices that have been reporting as a group to programs such as PQRS, the transition to MIPS may be less burdensome if the practice continues to report as a group. Keep in mind, though, that bonuses or penalties will be applied to the group as a whole regardless of each individual clinician’s performance.

I am a hospital-based physician, am I accountable for the same measures as outpatient clinicians?

A hospital-based physician is subject to all of the same MIPS rules as a physician practicing in other settings except that he or she is not scored on the Advancing Care Information (ACI) category. Instead, hospital-based physician’s MIPS score will be based on Quality and Improvement Activities (IA) in 2017.

When is the deadline to report?

March 31, 2018, but if you are reporting through your EHR then you should verify with your EHR vendor because they may have a different deadline. If you are using the claims-based reporting method, then you only have until Dec 31, 2017 to report.

How can I track my performance?

CMS will provide data to help you prepare for MIPS. Many physicians have participated in the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) and Value Based Modifier (VBM) programs to avoid payment penalties. CMS provides Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRURs) and feedback reports which you can obtain on the CMS website. All QRURs are available on the CMS Enterprise Portal: https://portal.cms.gov/wps/portal/unauthportal/home/. You may need to request the appropriate “role” in the system to view your QRUR.

Where can I find more information about the program?

How Does Your Medical Practice Measure Up?

Working in a medical practice can be fun, stressful, hectic, rewarding, and draining all at the same time. After all, we are responsible for the health of our patients –they turn to us in their time of need and we in turn do our best to ensure that they are treated well and that their medical ailments are either cured or controlled. Sometimes it is hard to balance the provision of high quality medical care while also working on the growth of your practice.

It is therefore important that some time is set aside specifically to analyze current operations and to do some strategic planning for the future growth of your practice. Our team at Leading Management Solutions has put together a list of questions to get you thinking and possibly identify some areas for potential improvement at your practice.

Do you have a well-known mission, vision, and values statement? For a practice to achieve success, all employees must be on board with the practice’s overall mission and goals. It is important to instill your mission, vision, and core values in every employee, and to lead by inspiring your team to strive for greatness.

Do you have an existing strategic plan that lists your goals, actions, and identifies a responsible person and time frame for carrying out those objectives? Until it is formally written down, your strategic plan is nothing but a set of ideas that may never come to fruition. It is important to have a written plan identifying the goals that you are trying to achieve, the actions that will get you there, who will be responsible for those actions, and by when these actions need to be completed.

Have you identified your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats? Any organization must be self-aware in order to stay in business. It is important to know what your practice’s strengths are, as well as what areas of weakness exist that may be improved with new processes. Additionally, a practice leader must always be aware of potential opportunities or threats that may present themselves in the external environment.

Do you have a formal onboarding and ongoing training process? A formal process for employee training is key to providing high quality services to your patients and to reducing patient frustration from avoidable mistakes. Training must begin from the first day that a new employee begins work, and must be pursued continuously to ensure that your standard of quality is held up by your whole team.

Do you utilize productivity bonuses for your staff? Your providers? A successful productivity bonus system can help engage and motivate your employees to be more productive and more involved in their work. Additionally, a productivity bonus system for your providers can allow your practice to see more patients and increase revenue.

Do your former employees frequently file for unemployment?All practices must deal with unemployment cases very carefully, to ensure that the practice is not paying benefits that are not their responsibility. It is important to always keep thorough documentation of any employee incidents or disciplinary actions in their files, to protect your practice from such frivolous cases.

Do you address uncomfortable issues that may be causing internal workplace tension? Some bad habits exist within any organization, especially in employees that have been with the practice for extended periods of time and feel too comfortable or even untouchable. It is easy to turn a blind eye to such activities; however, this sets a bad example for other employees, as well as negatively affects your practice’s quality and performance.

Do you have job descriptions? In order to hold an employee accountable for their work, detailed job descriptions must be created and signed by the employee upon hire. This prevents employees from claiming that they were unaware of a task that they were responsible for. If an employee is promoted or transferred to another department, a new job description needs to be created and signed.

These are just some of the questions that we ask when conducting a practice audit for our clients. We have found that many practices simply do not set aside enough time for formal strategic planning and reviews of current processes. Without being aware of the weaknesses that your practice may be facing, it is impossible to correct those issues, and you may be losing out on existing or potential new patients without even knowing.

Diabetes Management in the Future

According to the most recent WHO estimates, 422 million individuals suffer from diabetes around the world – and that figure is steadily growing. That means that 1 person in 11 must manage the severe condition on a day-to-day basis, which may lead to amputation, kidney failure, heart attack, or stroke. Here are 3 ways diabetes will be managed in the future:

Digital Contact Lenses

Even though the search engine Google halted in the development of Google Glass, its augmented reality glass, they didn’t give up on blending technology and vision. Novartis and the search engine giant signed a contract to cooperate on the creation of the digital contact lens that was patented in the year 2014. According to their plans, through this lens, it is possible to gain more data from the digital realm plus it has the ability measure levels of blood glucose from tears as an extra benefit.

Gamification

Isn’t it more exciting to make the diabetes creature satisfied than to boringly measure levels of blood glucose? There already are companies that leverage on your inner child. These will include incredible applications for phones which may assist you in efficiently managing diabetes. An Austrian company, MySugr, released a multitude of apps which may add a bit of gamification to traditional diabetes management applications. Watch the app in action: https://youtu.be/BTWqq1EZWFs

Artificial pancreas

Basically, the artificial or bionic pancreas will replicate a healthy version of how the organ performs on its own, and it’ll enable patients with diabetes to live a simpler life in a sustainable way. This device has the ability to constantly measure blood glucose levels and decide on the insulin delivery. Boston University engineers created a bionic pancreas system which uses continual glucose monitoring in conjunction with subcutaneous generation of both rapid-acting insulin, as well as glucagon as instructed by a computer algorithm.

Virtual Reality Companies for Improved Pain Management

Firsthand Technology for relief of pain

Present chronic pain treatment primarily includes narcotics, the effectiveness of which is reduced over time. According to a variety of studies that were enlisted by Firsthand, virtual reality decreases the period of thinking about pain by 48%, whereas narcotics just by 10%. It’ll decrease the unpleasantness of severe pain by 38%, while this number is just 16% in the instance of opioids. In addition, the fun element of virtual reality isn’t comparable to that of painkillers: 983% boost in a “better feeling” vs. 33% reduction of joy when using narcotics.
The company based in San Francisco has been a portion of pioneering teams of researchers who’ve established the industry of virtual reality pain control and assisted in building the first virtual reality pain alleviation app, SnowWorld. Firsthand Technologies provide practical and affordable virtual reality hardware kits and their corresponding software, Cool! and Glow! Its first one will follow you on a path through changing seasons or a beautiful landscape, whereas the second allows you to draw amazing light creatures using your hands. The kits are available for single patients, and additionally for hospitals.

AppliedVR for decrease of pain in hospital settings

The start-up that was born out of Lieberman Research Worldwide, a global market research company, provides VR solutions particularly for hospitals. They perform clinical research around the effectiveness and usability of how virtual reality assists patients all throughout their healing journey, to better acquire, design, as well as make validated therapeutic virtual reality content more accessible at scale within medical settings.
They’ll brand themselves as a “Netflix” channel of validated therapeutic content. Top hospitals in virtual reality ongoing trials and research, like the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center within LA, Children Hospital in Boston or UCLA partnered up with appliedVR to test the advantages of the technology for instance in decreasing labor pain.

Virtual Reality Companies are Changing Psychology

Here are the top 3 virtual reality companies bringing change to psychology:

Psious now treating phobias of human beings differently

The American and Spanish behavioral health technology business, Psious provides special treatment for psychological conditions like fear of needles, flying, a variety of animals, general anxiety, public speaking, or agoraphobia. With the assistance of VR, patients will get into situations that are fearful for them under the consistent control of a doctor. Their job includes facing their fears and slowly allowing them to go, while their imagination is assisted by virtual reality. So far, the results are more than encouraging!

Virtually Better provides virtual reality exposure therapy for phobias, depression, or anxiety

The pioneering virtual reality company founded in 1996, Virtually Better, provides, among others, an exposure therapy for those who suffer with anxiety disorders, PTSD, and certain phobias. The technology permits clinicians to circumvent most of the challenges related to other kinds of exposure therapy; as well as treat problematic areas which many clinicians merely lack the resources to efficiently treat. In most cases, it’s just not enough to tell a patient to imagine her or his biggest fear to resolve the problem – otherwise a patient wouldn’t actually require the intervention of an expert.

Bravemind frees soldiers from PTSD

Even though not only soldiers and war veterans experience PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), but also abuse or sexual assault victims, Bravemind is mostly for combat-associated PTSD.

 

This VR Exposure Therapy was created by a science team with the University of Southern California. It’ll permit clinicians to slowly immerse patients inside virtual environments that are representative of their traumatic experiences within a stepwise, controlled fashion. They’ll control the multi-sensory emotional stimuli that patients receive, as well as observe the intensity of a patient’s stress responses through psychophysiological assessment methods and advanced brain imaging.

How Much is Your Untrained Employee Costing You?

Your medical practice is only as strong as its weakest link—employees who lack training and make your practice look unprofessional can negate all of the effort and hard work from the rest of your team. Lack of training causes low productivity, an unsafe work environment, and increased expenses. Frequent mistakes not only cause patient frustration, but also coworker frustration: the coworkers have to clean up the messes that untrained employees create. Untrained employees can lead to serious financial and legal consequences. For example, a survey showed that 44% of the participants admitted to having shared sensitive company information because they “wanted to bounce ideas off of people”; 30% did so because they “needed to vent”, and 29% stated that they “did not see anything wrong with it.” These statistics show just how risky it is to have an untrained employee who can easily commit HIPAA violations for which you will be held responsible. When patient PHI has been compromised, the practice can face overwhelming financial penalties—and can even face criminal charges, depending on the nature and severity of the violation. A recent study shows that security breaches cost the healthcare industry $5.6 billion annually. The OCR has capped the fine for a severe HIPAA violation with no intent to correct at an annual maximum of 1.5 million dollars; however, even a fraction of this amount can seriously impact the financial stability of any practice.

Aside from HIPAA violations, untrained employees can cost you in many other ways:

Accidents or injuries while on the job: not only can an untrained employee injure himself while working, and seek financial compensation from your practice, but they can also create risky situations for other employees or even patients. Furthermore, accidents can lead to broken equipment, wasted supplies, and many other negative consequences. All such adverse incidents must be remedied and documented by the practice manager.

Bad customer service: every employee represents your practice. If an untrained employee provides bad customer service, displays a negative attitude, or is unable to answer common patient questions, it makes your whole practice look unprofessional and can cost you patients. When patients leave your practice due to subpar customer service or unknowledgeable staff, more often than not they will let their frustration be known to their friends and family, on social media and on Google reviews—leading to you losing even more patients and credibility.

Not collecting enough money from patients: If your untrained employee is a receptionist who is scared to ask patients for their co-pays or unable to explain patient balances, you will lose a significant chunk of money that should have been collected at check-in. Patient responsibility amounts have been climbing, and are now at around 23% of all A/R—and these balances are the hardest to collect if not collected at the time of service. If your untrained employee is a biller who improperly verifies a patient’s insurance—or does not verify it at all—and the patient gets seen, the practice loses money on that patient, whether by not collecting any money at all or by spending time and resources collecting it.

Not billing properly: no matter how amazing your providers are, how friendly your front desk receptionist is, or how caring your nurses are, your practice will not be able to operate if your billing department is not bringing in the revenue that you have worked so hard for. For example, an MGMA survey shows that better performing practices in primary care have an average Days in A/R of 23.54 days, as opposed to other practices who average 39.56 days. If your untrained billing staff is not following up on claims efficiently, many of your claims run the chance of being denied for untimely filing—causing you to lose large amounts of money.

Additionally, more so than in any other field, employee mistakes in healthcare can be deadly. Medical errors have been found to be the third leading cause of death in the US, with over 250,000 deaths per year caused by such errors. Some of the most common mistakes made by untrained healthcare employees include medication errors, infection issues, and charting or documentation mistakes. As we all know in healthcare, if it was not documented, it didn’t happen. This mistake may seem minor and easy to correct—if caught. However, if an untrained nurse forgot to document an allergy that a patient had, and the patient had a severe allergic reaction to the course of treatment provided, your medical practice as well as the individual provider treating the patient is now at risk of a malpractice suit—which comes with attorney fees, incurred financial losses, a damaged reputation, and higher malpractice insurance premiums. And this is only one way in which a documentation error by an untrained employee can lead to dire consequences.

Each of your employees directly represents your practice. The costs of not training your employees are too high for this to not be a priority for you. If you do not already have one in place, implement an onboarding and training process for all new employees—a general one for all new employees which introduces them to your practice mission, vision, core values, and goals, as well as a role-specific training process for each new employee to learn the intricacies of the position for which he or she was hired. Ensure that your training does not stop at new employees: existing employees need continuous training as well. Find a way to make it fun as well as informative—no one wants to sit through the same boring training routine over and over again. Although a new onboarding and training process may take some time and manpower to develop, the benefits of having such a program in place will be worth the effort exponentially when every employee at your practice is knowledgeable, professional, and on board with your practice’s vision and goals.

What is an Artificial Womb?

In the future, human beings will no longer be born; instead they’ll be “grown” inside fluid-filled sacks that resemble an artificial womb. Viable humans even would be picked from fields that are full of artificial wombs; then we’d arrive to The Matrix world. Plus, even if Neo won’t need to battle agents and artificial reality within the future, news outlets thought we inched closer to this reality with lambs which were nurtured inside artificial wombs. Some other ones foreshadowed that we may completely change the idea of pregnancy. Babies, in the future, may not be developed inside the mother’s womb, yet inside a “biobag” completely controlled by technology. What is the assumption here? It’s fairly obvious: artificial wombs would replace real ones in the future irrespective of any psychological, physiological, or other consequences. Furthermore, as technology’s process overtaking healthcare already is on an advanced level, most hospitals already should feature high-tech laboratories that are full of artificial wombs. Nope, they don’t!

Artificial wombs might save the lives of premature babies

The artificial womb has been successfully tested. Watch this YouTube video.

I must emphasize that an artificial womb is a great innovation, even though it still is in the early stages of development.

In the future, therefore, it’ll help to save the lives of premature babies, which means born prior to 24 weeks, and additionally preventing them from having long-range medical problems later on. As a premature infant is born, and air streams inside the lungs, the developmental procedure of maturing a lung becomes damaged. In keeping them inside an environment such as what the womb offers (and allowing them to “breathe” fluid), the lung tissue development may be extended. Plus, as the fluid-filled bag may better mimic life inside the womb, it may help to prevent infections, oftentimes a prevalent risk in the case of incubators.

What are the Top Specialties to Benefit from Telemedicine?

Telemedicine is growing in popularity with physicians and patients and has seen the expansion of services into different medical specialities. Every medical service provider and specialist has the potential to use telemedicine for data sharing, video consultations and remote monitoring of patients.
It is incredibly useful for patients who live in rural and sparsely populated areas in providing access to specialists in various fields of medicine. This ensures that they get access to quality healthcare at all times.

· Teleradiology

CT scans, X-rays and other radiographic images can be sent from one location to the other. The records of the patient can be sent in a secured manner to a qualified radiologist at another location, so that the patient can get a good consultation without having to wait long for diagnosis.

· Telenursing

The use of information technology and telecommunications have made it possible to provide nursing services when a large physical distance exists between the nurse and the patient.

· Tele Psychiatry

Videoconferencing can be used to provide treatment to patients remotely. A wide range of services can be offered to patients including assessment and diagnosis, educational clinical programs, consultation between psychiatrists, medication management, and follow up meetings.

· Tele Pharmacy

Pharmaceutical solutions are provided to patients who may not have access to a pharmacist.

· Telepathology

Telecommunication technology is used to transfer pathology data for the purpose of diagnosis to distant locations. The pathologist then selects the video images for analysis and diagnosis.

· Teleophthalmology

Ophthalmologists can make use of technology to examine patient’s eyes and check the treatments given from a distance.

· Tele Obstetrics

Prenatal care can be provided by obstetricians from afar. This means that the recording of a baby’s heart can be done at one facility and the report can be sent to the obstetrician at another facility for diagnosis.

The benefits of telemedicine are not limited to any specific medical specialities, as they are a great fit for any kind of virtual medical care. Additionally, both private and government payers are now reimbursing services provided via telemedicine, and it could be a great additional source of revenue for providers.

Medicine in the Future

It’s always challenging to find the projects that have the biggest possibility to be utilized in day to day medical practices, yet below include the most promising candidates that fulfill this idea.

Medical three-dimensional printing

If guns and additional items may now be printed and the biotechnology sector is working on even printing living cells; why might the appearance of three-dimensional printed drugs be a shock? It’ll ruin and re-design the entire world of pharmaceuticals, yet regulation will be a big challenge as anyone will have the ability to print any type of drugs containing patented molecules in their home. Bionic ears, as well as simpler organs are going to be printed at an individual’s bedside.

Gamifying behavior change

Compliance and adherence represent critical issues in improving individuals’ health and reducing the expense of delivering healthcare. Many start-ups targeted this problem with various solutions like a pill bottle which glows blue as a medicine dose should be consumed and red as a dose is missed; or small digestible sensors which may be placed inside pills and may transmit pill digestion information to family members and physicians. While individuals don’t like the word adherence as they have a desire to be partners with their caregivers instead of following orders, health insurance providers will utilize an increasing amount of information to check whether the individuals comply with their prescriptions to reduce their insurance expenses. The popular Pokemon Go motivated individuals to walk more which may lead to battling obesity when playing the game.

New diseases

 

New kinds of diseases are going to appear because of the excessive usage of virtual reality options in gaming and additional industries, which include healthcare. Virtual Reality as an extension of Internet activity and especially that of gaming also might lead to addiction. Expect to witness ICD codes that are assigned to these types of new conditions.

Where is Medicine Headed in the Future?

The following three aspects are going to change the way in which medicine is applied:

Artificial intelligence

I have always been a fan of IBM Watson. I’ve seen its possibilities as massive opportunities in medicine. It has the ability to help doctors in day-to-day medical decision-making, even though it won’t substitute humans, whatsoever. As a doctor may follow a couple of papers, perhaps a few dozen papers using digital solutions, Watson will have the ability to read forty million documents within fifteen seconds and suggest the best therapies. Atomwise has the goal of reducing the expenses of medicine development by utilizing supercomputers to predict, ahead of time, which possible medicines are going to work, and which will not. Google Deepmind Health is utilized to mine medical record data to offer faster and better health services. This project is within its initial stage, and currently they discovered a partner within the Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in Britain to improve the treatment of eyes.

Genomics

Since the Human Genome Project completion that had the aim of completing mapping and comprehension of all human being genes, we’ve been envisioning the age of personalized medicine where all people receive custom therapy with custom dosages. According to Personalized Medicine Coalition, the fact is that there will include hundreds of evidence-based personal genomic applications. As we move ahead on this journey, we’ll have an increasing amount of opportunities for utilizing DNA analysis at a patient’s bedside that ought to be mandatory before prescribing drugs.

Patient empowerment

In the future, whether it’s the reliable and right medical data, medical records, or dynamic resources, everything simply will be available to all people which may not sound that intriguing—yet this would solely be the most critical development in the era of medicine. Patients will finally lead healthcare.
