PYA Thought Leaders Featured in MIPS Strategy Article

PYA Principal Martie Ross and Consulting Senior Manager Graham Fox were recently featured in an article, “Catching Up on Your MIPS Strategy” published by the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA).

The article discussed how best to navigate the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) strategy and asked a panel of experts, including Ross and Fox, for tips and hints on the best ways to utilize and transition to MIPS.

“It’s going to be important for health systems to pay attention to those MIPS scores because everybody else will, including payers and professional-liability insurance providers,” Fox said.

Ross, who just authored a blog titled, “MIPS 2017:—15 minutes to Save Four Percent,” agreed. “Being a Track 1 MSSP accountable care organization will not qualify you as an advanced APM, but it will simplify MIPS scoring for your group because the APM scoring standard within MIPS is much more straightforward.”

For more information about MIPS strategy, or to request a speaker on this topic for your organization or event, contact one of our PYA executives below at (800) 270-9629.
