WEST DES MOINES, Iowa, Feb. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) awarded

a contract to Telligen to help small practices in Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota and North Dakota prepare for and participate

  • Conveying the MIPS expectations and timelines
  • Explaining the MIPS feedback report
  • Creating a MIPS-score improvement plan
  • Evaluating practice readiness for joining an Advanced Alternative Payment Model (APM)
  • Assessing and optimizing Health Information Technology
