The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Grants Alpha II Status as 2019 Qualified Registry
Alpha II’s integrated, web-based registry service received status as a CMS qualified registry for sixth consecutive year
TALLAHASSEE, Fla., Feb. 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alpha II, LLC, a leading developer of software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions that support healthcare reimbursement, announced today that it has been qualified by The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) as a Registry for the 2019 Quality Payment Program year. The Alpha II Registry was granted this CMS distinction following the extensive five-month self-nomination and attestation process.
The CMS qualification allows the Alpha II Registry to report clinical quality measures (CQMs) data on behalf of physicians and physician practices through a platform of data collection, editing and submission services. Alpha II provides four unique Registry options to simplify MIPS Reporting from comprehensive versions to more streamlined possibilities to best suit each need. All the Alpha II Registry solution options can be reported by either individuals, groups, or virtual groups.
“Alpha II is committed to offering the most comprehensive and effective technology and services to our customers as they look to tackle reimbursement challenges in a transitional value-based care environment,” said Jan Powell, CEO of Alpha II. “Alpha II offers Registry options that simplify CQM reporting for every level of participation and budget. As a qualified registry for 2019, we look forward to continuing to assist providers in avoiding payment penalties and gaining positive payment adjustments.”
The Quality Payment Program is the United States Department of Health & Human Services’ (HHS) take on further transitioning the healthcare industry from fee-for-service to value-based care. The 2017 final rule implemented the QPP as part of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). Clinicians have two tracks – Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) or Advanced Alternative Payment Models to choose from in the QPP based on their practice size, specialty, location, or patient population.
For almost 40 years, Alpha II has been on the forefront of healthcare reimbursement solutions. The company’s experience with the previous Quality program has enabled Alpha II to deliver a premier Registry Solution Suite. The Alpha II Registry integrates with a variety of practice management and EMR systems and provides actionable real-time feedback through its MIPS Dashboard.
