CMS approves Bivarus patient data registry to participate in MIPS: 4 key notes

Listen

CMS approved Bivarus to participate in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System for 2017 as a qualified clinical data registry.

 Here are four things to know:

1. Qualified clinical data registries collect and submit data for MIPS quality measures on behalf of clinicians. Those who submit data to MIPS in 2017 will avoid downward payment adjustments on Medicare Part B payments in the future.

2. Bivarus powers the Structured Assessment of the Patient Experience QCDR, recording practice performance data based on patient reported insights in near real time.

3. The Bivarus platform isn't clinically specific, so any eligible professionals in multispecialty groups can use it. The patient survey platform complies with MIPS and gathers meaningful patient-generated insights.

4. Patients can send insights via email or text messaging after their visit.

"We welcome the opportunity to work with CMS to create a useful set of measures that meet the MIPS requirements using the voice of the patient as the source of the data," said Bivarus CEO Dave Levin.
