What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You….

Fee-for-service has been the traditional methodology for reimbursements, but as CMS transitions to a pay-for-performance methodology, it is easy to get lost in the acronyms and the policy.  

The pioneering MACRA MadeEasy platform prepares anesthesia for the changes currently in effect from the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), as part of CMS’s Quality Payment Program (QPP) utilizing the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).  The solution guides clients through the changes and provides a structured and practice-specific program to ensure that a group is not only protected from penalties, but puts itself in line for incentive payments.  MACRA MadeEasy is a CMS-approved certified qualified clinical data registry (QCDR) and will be capable of posting all MIPS requirement data to CMS on your behalf.

The solution uses a balance of the following systems:

  • Plexus TG’s Anesthesia Touch™ certified electronic health record (EHR);
  • Anesthesia Business Consultants’ F1RSTAnesthesia practice management technology and analytics; and
  • MiraMed’s MACRA MadeEasy QCDR platform.

MACRA MadeEasy can help usher you into the future of healthcare by walking you through the required steps and avoiding the ones that won’t provide value.  Anesthesia Touch provides the required certified EHR, along with data points on quality care measures.  F1RSTAnesthesia practice management offers secure transfer of data and analytics to support the required improvement activities.  All this data transfers seamlessly to MiraMed’s MACRA MadeEasy certified QCDR program to submit to fulfill government requirements. 

Our over-arching solution guides anesthesiologists and anesthetists through the transition to successful submission to the QPP through our combination of EHR, quality measures, secure billing and a certified QCDR to meet governmental requirements.  The MACRA MadeEasy platform is dynamic enough to incorporate existing EHRs in your practice so that we can adapt to ensure your entire practice is protected.

Join the 2,000,000 patients and 6,000+ clinicians currently in the MiraMed MACRA MadeEasy certified QCDR program.
