The new year is the perfect time to celebrate what’s working in your eye care practice. It’s also a great time to look for areas that are ripe for growth. Have you been thinking about new systems and technology, like EHR software? Now is the time to take the steps toward making improvements for you and your staff.
It’s hard to believe that on January 1, 2019, the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) moves into its third year. New data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) shows that 93% of MIPS-eligible clinicians who participated in MIPS 2017 (Year 1) earned positive payment adjustments and 95% avoided a negative payment adjustment.
To help eye care practices learn how patient relationship management software helps improve patient outcomes and builds a more profitable practice, we are sharing this guest blog from Solutionreach, a First Insight integration partner. The following practice success story features a MaximEyes Cloud client, Springhouse Eye Associates in Pennsylvania, who uses Solutionreach services. 
For the seventh consecutive year, First Insight, developers of MaximEyes certified EHR and practice management software for eye care professionals, received the 2018 Learning! 100 award from the Elearning! Media Group for achieving excellence for “best-in-class” learning and development programs. This year First Insight was honored in the “performance” category for the MaximEyes Power Trainings we host in select cities throughout the United States.   
Now that the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) 2017 submission period is closed, don’t think you can procrastinate and put MIPS on the back burner for the rest of 2018. One of the biggest changes in 2018 is that eligible clinicians (ECs) must now report Quality and Cost performance category data to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for a full 12 months, beginning in the first quarter of 2019—which means the performance period has already begun.
