Every lost billable hour costs between $1,000-$1,500. Our physician led teams can quickly implement solutions to overcome short-term challenges while analyzing your environment to identify root cause and determine the pathway to long-term success.
The concept of tying medical reimbursements to quality of care is here to stay, but the effort to measure and report what payors define as quality can be difficult. Despite their complexity, however, quality programs can make a dramatic difference in quality of care and correspondingly, the success of your business.
Some organizations lack the time or resources to address such payor programs and requirements in a strategic way. Ineffective data capture processes and lack of experienced resources increase the likelihood of financial and reputational penalties. Reimbursements may be reduced, incentives lost, and physicians’ reputations marred by not getting appropriate credit for the quality care begin delivered. BroadPath understands this and works tirelessly to ensure that our clients’ reputations and reimbursements reflect the high quality of care being delivered to their patients.
BroadPath Provider Services specialize in simplifying regulatory compliance with the evolving world of pay-for-performance. We bring a core team that includes individuals with strong backgrounds in physician practice operations, regulatory compliance, EHR implementations, medical training, and public health policy and administration. Using available tools and appropriate technology, we minimize expenses by collaborating remotely when appropriate, and can bring resources onsite quickly when necessary.
Our primary focus is to help our clients achieve stronger performance on their clinical quality measures for both government (e.g., CMS’ Quality Payment Program – MIPS and APMs) and commercial (e.g., HEDIS) payor programs. For the past three years, we’ve helped thousands of clinicians from across the nation with their PQRS reporting strategies. With the advent of MACRA, we have been leveraging our experience and network to help our clients navigate the new Quality Payment Program requirements, guiding them to attain all available and applicable Performance Category points for the 2017 MIPS performance calendar year. We work with our clients’ Quality, Finance, IT, Ambulatory Care and Physician Services teams to recommend the most appropriate measures based on actual practice, taking advantage of the data available in the EHR system and documentation already being collected for any other payor quality programs.
