The MSN MIPit consulting team works closely with your organization and provides resources and expertise needed to organize and manage the MIPS program. Clients receive a detailed build plan and a tailored workbook detailing the client’s particular needs for a two-year cycle (the same cycle used by CMS), including an implementation strategy and assistance with measure selection. Then The MIPit team then provides support and guidance working through a plan (or plans—for multiple tax identification numbers) through with regularly scheduled calls and ongoing information. The client also receives audits of “Performance Met and Not Met” transactions, with specific, detailed coaching and gap analysis for “Performance Not Met” transactions.
After data submissions to CMS are completed for the reporting year, the MIPit team reviews each TIN or Provider CMS annual Quality Payment Program (QPP) report and will file an appeal if applicable. It should be noted this includes a review and update of provider files based on annual QPP tables, since this can impact scoring.
Much of the work implementing the plan is handled through conference calls and homework assignments, with work assigned both to MSN and the client. MIPit clients usually utilize the MSN QCDR and analytics are used extensively to suggest best case scenarios.
The MSN team also reviews, protests or approves the Physician Compare report during the 30-day review period. In addition, MIPit clients are provided ongoing education through webinars, including review of the Proposed/Final Rule and changes in the program.
