Succeeding in CMS’ new quality payment program: A Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) toolkit

Share this post:

In October, 2016, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced its new Quality Payment Program (QPP) based on the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA).

The QPP creates two new paths by which eligible clinicians will receive value-based Medicare reimbursement:

  1. The Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS)
  2. Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs)

Watson Health offers several population health solutions, clinical integration platforms, care management solutions and other tools to help clinicians increase reimbursement under the MIPS model, all while bringing more value for all your patients, not just your Medicare beneficiaries.

Learn more about how IBM Watson Health solutions align to support MIPS.
