Data makes a difference
EMA’s cloud-based platform allows you to have the flexibility you need to access clinical data from virtually anywhere. You will have the ability to look back at patient visits and even access patient photos. Eliminate extra time spent manually managing clinical data.
The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) shifts the thought process behind Medicare payments, offering plastic surgeons 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 another 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.
