Before you invest in attracting new patients, maximize your return on investment by reactivating your lost patients.
Re-engage Patients and Improve Satisfaction, Compliance, and Your Revenue.
For many of your patients, their follow-up visits correlate to out of sight, out of mind. For practices, this translates to poorer relationships and missed profit. Before you invest in attracting new patients, maximize your return on investment by reactivating your lost patients. Eye Care Leaders’ myCare Patient Reactivation can help your practice provide quality patient care and prompt active engagement and participation in treatment and care plans. However, overburdened staff don’t often have the time to perform a consistent reactivation process. That’s where Eye Care Leaders comes in with an innovative solution to engage your patients.
Reactivate The Right Patient Mix for Your Practice.
You run a busy practice, and should prioritize your reactivation efforts. At Eye Care Leaders, we help you optimize your revenue by consistently recalling patients that give you the right patient mix without you having to exhaust valuable resources or spend more to attract new patients.
myCare MIPS Assurance guides you through the entire MIPS reporting process – so that you can score high and get your bonus every time.
The Help You Need to Secure The Reimbursement You Deserve.
Are you keeping up with MIPS? Let’s hope so, as failure to adapt to changing CMS requirements could cost your practice in the not-so-distant future. The MIPS “Performance Threshold” (the MIPS Final Score needed to avoid a negative payment adjustment) has gone up from 15 in 2018 to 30 out of a 100 in 2019, and payment adjustments, which will range from -5% to an estimated +2.06% for the 2020 Medicare payment year based on your 2018 MIPS performance, will range from -7% to an estimated +5.67% for the 2021 Medicare payment year based on your 2019 MIPS performance. Even more importantly, CMS has entirely revised the MIPS “Promoting Interoperability” (formerly known as “Advancing Care Information”) measures and scoring, making it much more difficult to get a perfect MIPS Final Score. MIPS Improvement Activities also require documentation which is subject to being audited!
If your ophthalmology practice is not one that is already fully on track to deal with the changing MIPS regulations, myCare MIPS Assurance can help your practice overcome the economy-of-scale problem facing the majority of small practices nationwide. CMS estimated that almost 80% of solo practices and almost 70% of small group practices with fewer than 10 providers would fail MIPS in the sense of earning negative payment adjustment. CMS estimated that 83.4% of enterprise-size organizations with over 100 physicians would earn positive MIPS payments adjustments – funded by the negative payment adjustments applied to small practices!
Position Your Practice to Thrive in the Value-Based Era
myCare MIPS Assurance guides you through the entire MIPS process – so that you can maximize your MIPS Final Score and thus your future Medicare Part B reimbursements. Our MIPS Assurance specialists have expertise in the MIPS regulations, electronic workflows on your certified EHR technology, and eye care. Our value proposition is to make these expert resources to be part of your practice team on a part-time basis. MIPS Assurance assists you before, during, and after a given MIPS performance year:
- Prior to the performance year, we analyze your past performance, educate the practice on CMS rule changes to the MIPS program, and plan out your custom-tailored MIPS performance and reporting strategy.
- During the performance year, we guide you through the workflows and improvement activities needed to maximize your score, monitor your MIPS performance measures, and coordinate any issues related to MIPS performance, whether related to your software or third-parties such as registries.
- After the performance year, we assist you with attestations and registry reporting, verify the MIPS Final Score and payment adjustments awarded to your practice by CMS, and assist you with any appeals or audits.
myCare HIPAA Compliance gives you the assurance that your patients’ data is secured and your practice is protected.
Privacy. Security. Peace of Mind.
Practices today face a greater risk of PHI data breaches from internal and external threats, such as ransomware, stolen records, lost or unsecured digital devices, increased HHS audits, and more. Penalties for privacy breaches and/or noncompliance of HIPAA policies have grown 500 times in the last 8 years, with fines increasing from $100 to $500,000 or more per violation.
