Our panel of expert Clinical Practice Advisors and Dr. Karnasiewicz will discuss:
- How MIPS can help improve clinical outcomes for your patients.

CMS LAN Webinar: How to Succeed in the Promoting Interoperability Category for Solo and Small Group Practices
Tuesday, June 18, 2019 | 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT
Thursday, June 20, 2019 | 3:30 PM – 4:30 PM EDT
Understanding the Promoting Interoperability (PI) category with the new scoring and measurement policies can be challenging for clinicians in small practices. In addition, with many small practices having limited electronic health record technology resources, earning a good score may seem difficult. This event will help small practices understand PI scoring, what is needed to meet the 2019 Objectives and Measures, how to maximize limited resources while improving the care of your patients, and how to earn the best PI score possible. A panel of experts who regularly work with small practices will explain PI objectives and measures, discuss options for submitting your PI data, offer advice on how to align strategies for earning a good score with your efforts to provide better patient care, and explain when reweighting is an option for this performance category.
