New Tools Available to Submit MIPS Data Successfully

By David Doolittle

A lot of things happen on Jan. 1. The new year begins, thoroughbred horses turn another year older, gym memberships skyrocket.

Well, here’s another milestone you can add to the mix: Clinicians eligible for the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (commonly known as MIPS) can begin submitting data for the 2017 performance year on Jan. 1, 2018. (Cue party popper here)

Now, if you’re looking for a simple way to submit your data to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), keep reading because I’m going to tell you about TMF Health Quality Institute’s “MIPS Toolbox.”

Now don’t expect this toolbox to help you fix any physical problems you might have with MIPS. It doesn’t contain wrenches and screwdrivers.

Nope, this toolbox is actually an online app that you can use to select and track MIPS measures, calculate a projected final score, and submit data directly to CMS. Handy.

The best part is that all of it is at no or low cost.

But don’t take my word for it. Read more about it on TMF Health Quality Institute’s website, which also contains a link to sign up, plus phone numbers and email addresses where you can get answers to whatever questions you might have.

And be sure to check out TMA’s MACRA Resource Center, where you’ll get so plugged in to MACRA, MIPS, and APMs, you’ll start to glow.
