MIPS and MSN 

MSN has recognized the need to support physician groups following Medicare’s announced intention to transition from the Physician Fee Schedule to a value-based reimbursement model. That means MSN has been involved with the implications of the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) from the start of the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) to the its inception of MIPS and our services have been refined and expanded to meet the changing needs of the healthcare industry.

What does that mean to your organization?

  • We cut through the jargon to help you understand what you need to do to succeed
  • MSN offers an approved Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) and a Qualified Registry
  • Your organization is represented by MSN in meetings with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)
  • The MSN team proactively works to develop applicable new measures as older measures “top out”
  • You have a choice of various participation levels including MIPit, an optional more extensive management program
