Driving MIPS Performance:

Achieving success with gMed’s gGastro Suite of EHR Products, Data Analytics and Consultative Advisory Services

As a leader in specialty-specific value-based care, gMed is a proven performer with a successful track record in Meaningful Use attestations and PQRS reporting. This is important because a substantial portion of CMS’ Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) is based on Meaningful Use and PQRS.

In 2017 and beyond, Medicare will measure and compare your MIPS performance to that of your peers across a number of different criteria. Providers that exceed the minimum threshold in 2017 can be paid more money versus those that don’t. Providers that do not meet the minimum threshold can receive a substantial reduction in Medicare payments. We encourage you to visit to learn more about MIPS and MIPS scoring.

You need someone with a proven track record to help you navigate MIPS. gMed has your back and can help you attain MIPS success through its suite of gastroenterology-specific products and services. gMed is ready right now to help you collect your MIPS data and maximize your MIPS score though its EHR products, data analytic tools and personal advisory services.

gMed’s MIPS Readiness

  1. Our products and solutions automate the composite score elements that are used to calculate and monitor your MIPS score:
    1. Quality metrics (eCQM)
    2. Advancing Care Information (ACI)
    3. Improvement Activities (IA)
  2. Our award-winning, 2014 ONC Certified EHR system, gGastro, and our gInsights analytics solution show how you compare to your peers on a daily basis
  3. Real-time, built-in and actionable analytics features measure your performance so you can make adjustments to meet the minimum threshold and stay competitive with your peers
  4. Proven track record of successful performance in specialty-specific Meaningful Use attestations and PQRS reporting. Both of these measures (Quality and Advancing Care Information) make up 85% of the 2017 MIPS composite score

MIPS Scorecard

gMed’s gGastro products feature an easy-to-read, built–in scorecard to show you how you are performing in MIPS. The scorecard provides a single MIPS composite score that factors in your personal scores in the four* weighted performance categories. The embedded scorecard is included at no cost as an added benefit to our gGastro clients.

mips summary
*For 2017, CMS will not factor in the Cost component; therefore only 3 component categories will count toward the composite score.

MIPS Peer Comparison via gInsights

gMed wants to give you a leg up on the MIPS competition. As a gGastro client, you are eligible to receive one user license per practice to our gInsights Compliance app at no charge, part of our powerful gInsights data analytics platform. This added benefit will enable you to compare your MIPS scores to that of your peers from both the gMed and Modernizing Medicine community who report their MIPS data into the analytic platform.

Want a deeper look at your practice beyond compliance? Our full gInsights product option can help you to improve the clinical, financial and operational aspects of your practice. With gInsights’ in-depth, real-time data reports, you can analyze your practice’s performance and take corrective action as necessary.
