IHANY Newsletter – November 2021
This month’s priorities:
- Annual Wellness Visits (AWV): Our most recent performance indicates that as a CIN we are at 24% AWV (Claims paid through the end of August 2021). For 2021 we need to exceed 50%. To help move the dial and address patient education on AWV the IHANY team has developed a Medicare AWV Patient Education Document you can use. Click the image to the right. This document was distributed to Quality leads during September. If you would like copies, posters or have any other questions please reach out to Brian Pinga.
- GPRO preparation: Since April we have been providing live and recorded education in preparation for our annual GPRO audit which will begin in January. Before January we need to prepare and make sure that each practice has a designated resource to assist in the data abstraction and gap closure. Meeting notifications have gone out to our contacts at our primary care locations. We ask that a representative from each primary care organization attend one of the two GPRO prep meetings (Monday November 5 @ 8am or Wednesday November 10th @ 12pm). If you did not receive the invite please reach out to Brian Pinga.
- Promoting Interoperability: Please make sure you have completed your Security Risk Analysis (SRA) for 2021. This is a mandatory annual requirement for those TIN required to report PI. If you have any questions please contact Laura Graham.
