The five P's of abstraction outsourcing
For years, healthcare providers have struggled with not only hundreds of possible quality measures, but also multiple entities to which they are required to report. Under the MACRA proposed rule published by HHS, quality accounts for half of a total score in year one. Providers will choose to report six measures from among a range of options that accommodate differences among specialties and practices.
Health systems and their practices must prepare for the evolving measure portfolio that will be created for quality measurement under MACRA. Having the right external partners in place will be critical to the success of health systems and their practices as they prepare for the new realities of the very near future.
Outsourcing your quality measures can help you avoid these complications and realize cost savings, especially if you find a partner who values the 5 “Ps”: people, passion, process, performance and partnership.
