Health systems relying on EHRs and population health management systems for reporting under CMS' Quality Payment Program are at risk of falling short of their goals because they see the technologies as unsatisfactory and flawed, according to an SA Ignite report.

The State of QPP Preparedness Industry Report, conducted in collaboration with Porter Research, analyzed responses from roughly 120 health system executives on their organizations' readiness for CMS' QPP.  According to the report, 94 percent of respondents indicated they are actively participating in the QPP, with 63 percent of respondents taking the Merit-based Incentive Payment System path and 31 percent opting for Advanced Alternative Payment Models.

Here are four things to know.

1. Nearly all healthcare organizations (97 percent) indicated they rely on EHRs or PHM solutions as their primary tool for reporting data to QPP, but 39 percent scored their system with low satisfaction.

2. A majority (64 percent) of respondents want to maximize patient payment incentives, but 72 percent of them said their EHR does not offer a MIPS solution. 

3. Eighty percent of respondents believe QPP is part of their organization's broader value-based initiative, but 73 percent said their system vendor does not offer a specific QPP management solution.

4. It was worse for those on the APM path — 94 percent reported their EHR vendor does not offer a solution.
