DALLAS– October 12, 2016 – KPN Health, Inc. is pleased to announce that OneTouch EMR has chosen KPN as its as its CMS Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) Qualified Registry Partner to assist OneTouch EMR providers in selecting and successfully reporting PQRS quality measures for the 2016 performance year.
“KPN Health is excited to have the opportunity to work with OneTouch EMR because we are passionate about assisting and supporting independent physician practices survive and thrive in this ever-changing and complex, regulatory healthcare environment,” said Christie Lawrence, Vice President, Business Development, KPN Health. “Our goal is to guide each provider group through the 2016 reporting process and to ensure they are ready for the proposed Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) program that will potentially replace the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) on January 1, 2017.”
KPN Health offers OneTouch EMR clients a seamless way to file PQRS data because KPN Health successfully extracts the data directly from OneTouch EMR clients. KPN Health will extract 100 percent of each client’s Medicare Part B data directly from the OneTouch EMR client database and run the data through its proprietary clinical protocol engine to determine performance on each measure. KPN Health also reviews performance on at least 12 – 15 quality measures for each practice rather than just the required nine. This extra effort helps practices report only their best quality measures and increases the practice’s chances of being in the top quality tier where they have the chance to qualify for bonus dollars.
“We chose KPN Health as our PQRS Registry Partner because of their quality reporting expertise and their consultative, educational approach to working with providers,” said Dr. Robert Abbate, MD, CEO, OneTouch EMR. “KPN Health also has a 100 percent success rate at successfully submitting PQRS data to CMS.”
Working together, KPN Health and OneTouch EMR are determined to help practices become more efficient, effective and successful at delivering quality patient care at an affordable price.
