Practice Pro announces a partnership with Focus on Therapeutic Outcomes Inc (FOTO) to provide physical therapists and occupational therapists a streamlined and cost-effective Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) reporting solution for the 2019 performance period.

Via integration with the FOTO Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR), Practice Pro clients who are eligible to report as individual clinicians or groups, as defined by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), for 2019 will be able to efficiently gather, monitor, and submit quality outcome measures, quality process measures, and improvement activities data throughout the year.

This benefit is extended to those clinicians who are required to participate in MIPS for 2019 and to clinicians or groups who wish to participate under CMS’ Opt-in or Voluntary Participation options, according to a media release from Practice Pro.

“In addition to the convenience of Practice Pro’s existing Qualified Registry, we always want our clients to have access to the best tools available. FOTO’s fully featured outcomes manager and QCDR solution is that best tool,” says Sanjay Patel, founder and CEO of Practice Pro, in the release.

“FOTO’s long-standing reputation for excellent solutions and customer support was also an influencing factor,” he adds. “It’s clear this QCDR is designed to alleviate added clinical documentation burden for Practice Pro and FOTO users, while driving MIPS compliance. Dashboard monitoring will catch errors in advance, allowing clinicians to tweak workflows or data capture as needed to feel fully confident when it’s time to report.”
