ArborMetrix showcases provider quality improvement and CMS quality reporting solutions at HIMSS17 in the Clinical & Business Intelligence Knowledge Center, Booth #6779-24

ANN ARBOR, MI (February 16, 2017) – The majority of the more than 800,000 active physicians in the United States are facing a new reality in 2017: the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Quality Payment Program (QPP) and its Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). CMS estimates more than 500,000 clinicians are eligible for its QPP this year alone and are required to report on various quality measures to receive incentives. To succeed with MIPS, many of these providers are turning to Qualified Clinical Data Registries (QCDRs), CMS-approved entities (registries) that collect clinical data for the purpose of improving the quality of care delivered to patients in a particular population.
