The profession of Audiology has an opportunity to demonstrate the importance and quality of our services to our patients, policy makers and payers. We need your help to achieve this.
As previously announced, The Audiology Quality Consortium, representing 9 member organizations, has collaborated with healthcare analytics firm Healthmonix, to create new audiology-specific measures for use in the CMS Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).
Now is the time to participate. Your critical input, needed before June 30, 2021, may impact our future reimbursement.
Please participate in the testing of these quality measures in your facility. We are in need of data from a variety of practice settings. The cost to participate starts at $289 per provider per year. See more information on pricing.
See AQC’s FAQ for more information about this testing and how to participate.
How You Can Help
We need participants from a variety of practice settings to help implement our new Quality measures. Provider participants reporting to MIPS will receive performance feedback that can lead to improved patient outcomes and ultimately contribute to demonstrating the value of audiology services in the healthcare delivery model. You also will be eligible to be included in the Medicare Care Compare Doctors & Clinicians profile pages and in the Provider Data Catalog.
