Your ImageGuide Advantage: Simple Steps to Make MIPS Manageable
With MACRA's Quality Payment Program, clinicians get a significant dose of expanded responsibility, much of it in the form of daunting new reporting requirements, as noted in this new article by ASNC 2017 President Raymond R. Russell, MD, PhD, FASNC.The good news, Dr. Russell notes, is that cardiologists can leverage a CMS-designated qualified clinical data registry, such as ASNC's ImageGuide Registry, to significantly reduce the reporting burden. How? Because, when nuclear cardiologists use the ImageGuide Registry to complete MIPS reporting requirements, their obligation drops from 50 percent of all of their cases to 50 percent of their imaging cases.
Ready to reduce your MIPS burden? Here's how:
- The most efficient way to benefit from the ImageGuide Registry advantage is to work with an ASNC-certified software vendor. To date, INVIA, Syntermed and Cedars-Sinai have earned ASNC certification for their nuclear reporting software. If your practice uses one of these vendors, enroll in ImageGuide today, and let your software vendor know you're ready to start!
- If your vendor isn't on the list yet, encourage them to get on board with ImageGuide. They need to hear what valued customers need, especially when there's a specific, proven solution that will make your work easier. Suggest your software representative contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on becoming a certified vendor.
