PCS-MS can help your practice become MIPS complaint by providing technology services that work for you, allowing you to stand out in the medical field as a provider of quality care and resources. Here’s how we’ve provided services for healthcare facilities looking to meet MIPS requirements:
Practice management software can help you put an emphasis on quality care and support by taking the pressure off of employees to handle tasks that are better suited for computers, such as billing, filing, making appointments, etc. If your employees are less stressed from not having to deal with insurance companies and outstanding invoices, they are much more likely to enjoy conversing with clients and making sure customer service and quality care are a priority.
With electronic health records and project management systems like Greenway Intergy, your practice can provide patients with the ability to make and schedule appointments online, view health records without the need for faxing or filing, and make payments at the touch of a button. Services like these are able to make your company stand out above the crowd.

If your practice is too busy filing insurance claims, seeking overdue payments, filing records, or scheduling appointments by telephone all day every day, chances are you may not have programs in place that allow providers and staff to work with patients to set goals, make decisions, and stay on track with self-care and disease prevention. By delegating time-consuming tasks to your technology, you have more time to look at the big picture goals, including how to implement extensive care programs.
If the cost of your services has gone up due to unpaid balances, an IT management system can help your services and pricing competitive by allowing you to send payment reminders, schedule automatic withdrawals, and stay up to date on outstanding invoices without spending hours on the phone each day.
When patients have the ability to see what they owe without having to speak to a customer service or accounting representative, or when they receive text and email alerts about payment reminders, they are much more likely to take care of unpaid balances.
