Making an impact everyday
Telligen is helping healthcare providers report healthcare data to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services using their electronic health records. For one physician practice in particular, this is the first time they have participated in the Physician Quality Reporting System. Telligen provided significant assistance to help them overcome technical issues with this new process, including running reports, researching quality of care measure information, providing authorization guidance and analyzing their data for accuracy and completeness.
Initially it appears at least nine providers will meet criteria for reporting and qualify for incentive payments one year ahead of their target. Telligen is working to overcome remaining issues but anticipates getting the data successfully submitted prior to the deadline.
According to the practice's quality staff, "This type of data reporting is such a hard sell with the providers, so I really can't express enough how much I really appreciate all the support I can get through this". For this group finding many of them will receive incentive payments for demonstrating how they are providing quality care will help bring the others on board.
Telligen will now work with them to monitor and improve performance on their selected quality measures for each patient every time.
