KANSAS CITY, Mo., July 11, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Last week, Caravan Health received confirmation from the Centers
Our partners in Caravan Health ACOs scored over 92 percent on average, with an average upward payment adjustment of more than 1.5 percent. CMS provided a very low return to high scores in the early years of the program, but the continued implementation of the MIPS program will gradually force larger rewards for high MIPS scores and consequently greater penalties for lower scores over the coming three years.
Of the 22 Caravan Health ACOs in that cohort, 15 earned over 90 percent overall MIPS score several with perfect or near-perfect total scores. The MIPS scores for the 2017 performance year, which ran from January 1 to December 31, are made up of three parts: quality, advancing care information, and improvement activities (non-ACO clinicians are also scored on cost, a notoriously volatile metric). As published in our recent white paper, Caravan Health ACOs have made impressive gains on clinical quality measures for 2017. This strong quality performance is reflected in these high MIPS scores.
"As the ACO program matures, we are delighted that Caravan Health clinicians are continuing to excel at the factors included in the MIPS scoring," said Caravan Health CEO and Founder Lynn Barr. "These data are further proof that our unique population health approach makes the connection between patient health, quality improvement, and strong finances. We are creating an ideal environment for ACO success."
