Protect Revenue, Reduce Your Compliance Risk, and Receive Custom Support
Managing the revenue cycle workflow and ensuring proper claims compliance are two of the most important aspects of running a successful practice. Yet many practices lack the staff time and expertise to ensure patient visits are properly coded and the practice is properly reimbursed. This lack of focus both reduces revenue and increases the risk of audits due to improper coding. Let Eye Care Leaders show you how our advanced myCare RCS packages can maximize your revenue and compliance.
- Identifying all available cash opportunities
- Claims submissions
- Electronic remittance and payments posting
- Denials analysis and handling
- Accounts receivable follow-up and collections
- Detailed reporting
- Advanced myCare Revenue Cycle Managment consists of two packages – myCare RCS Partner and myCare RCS Evolve.
The fastest way to grow your practice and keep it relevant in today’s healthcare market is to get on board with digital marketing.
There’s More to Data-Driven Decision Making Than Meets the Eye.
There’s an old saying that if you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it. That’s why we created myCare Analytics; to provide insight to your eye care practice and empower you to create measurable growth. myCare Analytics gives you transparency into your practice by easily facilitating the capture and examination of data from all areas, so you can base your decisions on the best data possible. This involves the use of dashboards, metrics, indicators, and action items to help you understand what’s going on in your practice — your pain points and strengths — and how to reach increasing levels of success.
Practice-Shaping Data Analytics Are in the Eye of the Beholder.
At Eye Care Leaders, we know that an effective analytics solution is not one-size-fits-all. Our robust platform allows you to create ad-hoc reports based on your specific workflow, patient mix, goals, and staff. We don’t just give you the metrics and leave you to figure out what to do next. We’re hand-holders. We make recommendations for best practices, help you adopt an improvement plan, and offer evolutionary workflow services to improve your overall practice.
- Improve medical non-compliance
- Decrease wait times
- Increase regulatory compliance
- Capture more money including co-pays and deductibles every month
- Decrease operating costs
- Increase patient volume
- Improve interoperability with your EHR
Before you invest in attracting new patients, maximize your return on investment by reactivating your lost patients.
Open a New World of Patient Interaction and Affinity.
Creating a passive, yet powerful point of contact with your patients, myCare Patient Engagement facilitates ongoing interaction with the lifeblood of your practice. It allows you to connect with your patients and provide out-of-office care and follow-up at any time, allowing patients to feel more involved with their own care. Further, it reduces administrative work for staff since information entered into any of the products that are part of the myCare Patient Engagement suite is automatically downloaded into each patient’s file. This is a result of the seamless integration with Eye Care Leaders’ PM and EMR solutions.
myCare Patient Engagement includes a suite of products that benefits both your patients and your practice:
- myCare Patient Check-In—Provides a fast and easy check-in experience by allowing patients to complete and update insurance, demographics, allergies, medications, consent forms, and more.
- myCare Patient Mobile—Allows your patients to access their records, manage their health information, and communicate with your practice via a mobile app.
- myCare Portal—Can be reached directly from your practice’s website to offer patient education services, request medication refill requests, send secure bill payments, schedule new appointments, fill out patient forms, and more.
- myCare Referral Management— Allows for referral tracking, messaging, document and data transfer, and automated messaging to make the referral process with your patients easier than ever before.
The result will be an increase in patient efficiency including:
- Shorter wait times as patients update their information before appointments which results in a quicker check-in experience.
- Increase in revenue since you are able to capture online patient payments at any time.
- Lower administrative burden as data-entry time is minimized which results in increased efficiency for the practice.
- Reduction in errors since staff no longer has to interpret handwritten patient forms.
Put myCare Patient Engagement to work for your practice by increasing productivity and compliance while also connecting with your patients like never before.

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.
