The Quality Payment Program Has Two Participation Tracks
In MIPS, you may earn performance-based payment adjustments for the services you provide to Medicare patients.
Alternative Payment Model
An APM is a CMS customized payment approach designed to incentivize clinicians who are providing high-quality, high-value care. APMs can focus on specific clinical conditions, care episodes, or populations.
Eligible Professional / Eligible Clinician CQMs
Our MIPS experts and ONC-certified CQMsolution software combine to enhance your CQM experience from start to finish. Our focus is optimizing your measure performance and facilitating successful CQM submission. CQMsolution allows you to monitor measure performance, automatically run monthly reports and drill down to analyze patient data and measure logic.
DHIT offers expertise in data extraction, measure logic and quality program support. Our efforts are geared toward alleviating organizational burden and giving you peace of mind when deadlines loom. We can also serve as your Qualified Registry (QR) to submit MIPS CQMs, handling submission and follow-up on your behalf. Our goal is for you to spend more time with patients and less time with confusing regulatory requirements.

MIPS Strategic Partnership
CQMsolution + Registry
Supporting Programs: MIPS, Primary Care First, CPC+, CCBHC, IQR, and The Joint Commission
ONC certified 2015 Edition Cures Update bolt-on software for Clinical Quality Measures.
CQMsolution is certified for 170.315(c)(1-4) with all eCQMs and a substantial list of non eCQMs. The dashboard provides performance scores and benchmarks for each quality measure. Users can drill-down to view clinical data and see how CQM logic was applied to the patient and whether the patient is in the numerator, exclusion, or exception.
Since we are the Quality Measure experts, we created a seamless integration between CQMsolution and our MIPS Registry platform. EHRs have integrated CQMsolution and added an optional Registry partner for their users. Users review their measures and when ready to submit, they just click a button.
