    Benefit #1:
Reduce your financial exposure

Problem:  In 2017, CMS has changed the game:
PQRS is gone.  GPRO is gone.
  Qualified Registry XML submissions are gone. 
And your practice needs a proven solution to comply with the new CMS MACRA report processes.  See ACO solution here.

Proven Solution: Since 2015, CUHSM clients have used our
                      proven MACRA compliant submission process. 

Proof: Participating ACO providers have achieved positive financial results with our proven MACRA compliant services and toolkit. 


CUHSM was the sole QCDR to successfully generate QRDA submissions for multiple ACO providers for the CMS 2015 PY.  

Benefit: Your income is protected with CUHSM's tested MACRA processes .

   Benefit #2
Minimize MACRA related interruptions

Problem: A poorly planned transition to MACRA processes will require expensive EHR upgrades, IT support and cause workflow interruptions.  Many Qualified Registries have been unsuccessful in shoehorning legacy PQRS processes into MACRA support roles.

Solution: Our MACRA QRDA Submission process uses proven techniques that minimize workflow interruptions.  Muliple discrete programs that review over 6,400+ parameters to expedite data validation and scrubbing processes where errors are identified at all stages of the QRDA submission generation process.

Benefit: Validated CMS submissions save time and staff resources
CUHSM thoroughly analyzes the data integrity and audit trails within QRDA submissions to optimize all elements and stages of CMS submission review.

   Benefit #3
Expedite compliance with multiple reporting mandates

Problem: 2017 mandates require a new quality report format:QRDA:
CMS, CDC, The Joint Commission (TJC), CDC and State agencies burden your staff and vendors to submit accurate QRDA submissions. 


Your organization balks at the cost, time and resources required for the upgrades required for onslaught of multiple QRDA mandatess.

Solution: QRDA Pro Shield leverages your current technology and workflow to achieve MACRA, QPP, IPPS/IQR,  and TJC compliance.

Benefit #1:   CUHSM shields your IT systems from QRDA regulatory updates,  minimizing costly changes to your existing technology. 

Benefit #2: No longer must you switch EHR vendors to generate validated QRDA submissions. 

    Benefit #4:
Merged your processes for
Hospital and Ambulatory quality submissions

Problem: Most organizations duplicate effort by having two independent departments for ambulatory and hospital reporting due to unique specifications. 

Solution: Our unified QRDA/eCQM report process uses efficient tools that are ONC certified for both Eligible Hospitals (EH), Critical Access Hospitals (CAH) and Eligible Providers (EP).

This enables you to merge reporting resources required for QPP, IQR, The Joint Commission (TJC) and other QRDA quality report mandates (Medicaid, CDC).

Benefit:  Duplicate efforts are eliminated, conserving yYour resources by a merged report process.

Benefit  #5
Improved Patient Adherence

Missed appointments, non-adherence to regimens, and lack of engagement in preventive care all deter positive outcomes. 

Using suitable Patient Adherence Measures (PAM), patient adherence can be quantified in order to initiate followup targeted communications and adjust appropriate risk factors that correlate with patient interactions.    More info...
