Improve Outcomes

Capture better data, create better outcomes

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.

MACRA, MIPS and Ophthalmologists

How emphasis on quality over volume is changing the way you get paid.

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.

Learn more about MACRA and MIPS here.

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.

Here are five ways EMA Ophthalmology addresses MACRA and MIPS to help you thrive in 2017 and beyond:

  1. Real Patient Engagement and Analytical Tools
  2. Automated Quality Data
  3. Population Health Registries
  4. A Pledge to Interoperability
  5. Professional Support
