Covisint Notes Grant Deadline Approaching For Docs
The Covisint business unit of Detroit-based Compuware Corp. announced that physicians and care provider organizations are nearing the absolute deadline for processing submittals to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for the 2010 Physician Quality Reporting Initiative.
Leveraging Covisint DocSite PQRI, physicians and practice managers can now submit 2010 PQRI data through March 15.
Covisint is one of a few remaining services still available for submittals, and Covisint DocSite PQRI continues to make reporting on PQRI and receiving incentives from CMS easy for doctors and hospitals. CMS offers revenue incentives for delivering excellent care through participation in this voluntary quality reporting program. Health care organizations choose Covisint because of its proven, cost-effective way to manage and execute on payment reporting for physicians regarding data on quality measures.
Covisint outpaced all competitors by completing more than 4,500 submissions for 2010 incentives, a 300 percent year-over-year increase in the submission rate. Because of this, providers have obtained anywhere from hundreds of dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars.
“Covisint has quantifiably dominated the industry in terms of taking the pain out of submitting for PQRI,” said Brett Furst, vice president of healthcare for Covisint. “Our Covisint DocSite PQRI solution helps deserving organizations obtain government funds for encouraging health IT adoption. The window is closing, but there is still time left for Covisint to help health care organizations obtain the funds that are rightfully theirs.”
In 2010, PQRI participation is at its most lucrative, paying 2 percent of Medicare fees and an extra two percent bonus if providers use ePrescribing technology — a registration and payment system that Covisint also facilitates.
The Covisint DocSite PQRI service can be accessed by calling (919) 256-9500 or by visiting www.covisint.com/web/guest/healthcare/docsitepqri.
The Covisint ExchangeLink platform provides industry-specific services for identity management, collaborative portals and data exchange, as well as a third-party application marketplace.
