Are You a Good Doctor?

As an optometrist, I have always thought I do a good job.  I listen to my patients' concerns, use high tech equipment, work with a very talented team and make strong recommendations.  I have always tried to honor our mission statement by always carefully monitoring each patient’s visual development, function and preservation

In general, my patients feel like they were well taken care of and keep coming back.  If you go by the diner in Carrollton, GA and ask, “Hey does anybody know if Dr. Rothschild is any good?”, you will probably get a positive response. 

So what?

In tomorrow’s world, we will be paid based on our merit (Merit Based Incentive Plans (MIPS)).  I shouldn’t worry, because as I just explained, I practice with substantial “merit”.  However, in the very near future, I will have to demonstrate that merit based on someone else’s scorecard.  (I don’t think they will be polling the diner.)

Many people feel like the changes that are coming our way will have a positive impact for those who are ready.  

Last month, Dr. Brett Paepke released for us a Featured Presentation titled, "MU, MARCA, MIPS and More....OMG!"  If you don't understand the title, then you have some catching up to do.  

Dr. Paepke is the Director of ECP Services for Revolution EHR and an authority on the new payment models and requirements that we are all facing.  We are releasing his video again and hope that if you haven't seen it yet, you will take the time to watch it now.  

Happy Memorial Day,
