Data makes a difference
Medical records and data are critical in patient care, but just recording information on paper charts, or template-based EMRs is just data. You need smart data, data that is structured in a meaningful way to give you greater diagnostic and treatment power. EMA enables true data-driven healthcare.
The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) shifts the thought process behind Medicare payments, offering ophthalmologists positive payment adjustments for providing higher quality care. Should those standards not be met, however, practices could experience negative payment adjustments. And it can add up fast.
By combining three existing quality reporting programs, PQRS, MU and the Value-based Payment Modifier, and adding a new program called Practice Improvement, MACRA created the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).
When MACRA and MIPS roll out in 2017, data will be key. Having an EHR system like EMA to automate structured data and provide analytics will be crucial to how your practice fares.
