Infographic: MACRA Countdown to Measurement Year Goals

May 27th, 2016 by Melanie Matthews

Under MACRA, the physician quality measurement systems in place in 2017 will determine physician Medicare reimbursement in 2019, according to a new infographic by Geneia.

The infographic describes the pace of change in physician value-based reimbursement, the adjustments that will be made to Medicare claims starting in 2019 and three steps that practices should be taking now to be ready.

Since the January 2015 rollout by CMS of new chronic care management (CCM) codes, many physician practices have been slow to engage in CCM. Arcturus Healthcare, however, rapidly grasped the potential of CCM to improve patient outcomes while generating care coordination revenue, estimating it could earn up to $100,000 monthly for qualified patients treated in its four physician practices—or $1 million a year.

Medicare Chronic Care Management Billing: Evidence-Based Workflows to Maximize CCM Revenue traces the incorporation of CCM into Arcturus Healthcare's existing care management efforts for high-risk patients, as well as the bonus that resulted from CCM code adoption: increased engagement and improved relationships with CCM patients.

Infographic: Delineating Accountable Care Responsibilities

May 25th, 2016 by Melanie Matthews

States introducing accountable care organization (ACO) programs into an existing Medicaid managed care environment will need to assign responsibilities between ACOs and managed care organizations (MCOs). Successful delineation of responsibilities can support ACOs and MCOs in complementing one another and being better positioned to improve care delivery for Medicaid enrollees, according to a new infographic by the Center for Health Care Strategies Inc.

The infographic identifies five responsibilities that both ACOs and MCOs may share and outlines which entity may be better suited to perform each function.

2015 Healthcare Benchmarks: Accountable Care Organizations Even before CMS published its agenda for moving Medicare into value-based payment models like the accountable care organization (ACO), the number of public and private ACOs had exceeded 700, by a Leavitt Partners estimate. Already, more than 20 percent of healthcare organizations plan to participate in Medicare's latest accountable care model, the Next Generation ACO, in the coming year.

Support for CMS's latest alternative payment offering is just one of the ACO metrics contained in 2015 Healthcare Benchmarks: Accountable Care Organizations. HIN's fourth annual compendium of metrics on ACOs captures how ACOs are faring in an industry rapidly shifting away from fee for service to one that rewards quality, the patient and population experiences, and cost efficiencies.

Infographic: How Digital Health Is Shaping EHRs

May 23rd, 2016 by Melanie Matthews

Although provider's electronic health record (EHR) adoption jumped from 42 percent in 2009 to 83 percent in 2014 as a result of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009, the broader impact of this transition remained questionable on patient outcomes. While EHRs are expected to improve the quality and accessibility of healthcare, increase patient engagement, and lower care costs, issues of cost, usability, interoperability, and regulatory compliance severely limited the anticipated growth, according to a new infographic by Vigyanix.

With the rise of digital health, however, the EHR landscape is shifting dramatically and the barriers to adoption have started to diminish. The infographic examines how digital health is shaping the future of today's EHRs.

While widespread adoption of electronic health records has generated new streams of actionable patient data, John C. Lincoln has taken data mining to new levels to enhance performance of its accountable care organization (ACO).
