BIRMINGHAM, Ala., March 31, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- A2C, a comprehensive electronic medical record (EMR) solution built for physical, speech and occupational therapists, today announced its EMR users have achieved a MIPS score of 94.9 out of 100 for the 2021 payment year.
MIPS, or the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System, was created under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 and is a value-based payment model. The program measures for reporting quality are similar to those in the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), however, features various reporting categories not in PQRS—including quality-improvement activities, efforts to promote interoperability, and cost saving measures. Physical rehabilitation only participates in Quality Measures and Improvement Activities and is exempt from the Promoting Interoperability and Cost components of MIPS.
The following statistics demonstrate a comprehensive view of A2C's 2019 reporting year results:
- 26 clients participated, representing 260 providers
- Four clients scored a perfect 100 (15 percent of participating clients)
- Zero clients received a penalty
- 20 clients scored a 90 or higher (77 percent of participating clients)
"The fact that our participating clients achieved a top-level MIPS score is a testament to the effectiveness of our technology in helping practitioners run their business and care for their patients," said Adam Aitken, Executive Vice President, Therapy Brands, parent company of A2C Medical. "These reporting measures are a solid barometer of the quality of outcomes our customers are providing for their patients."
