CareCloud Introduces MIPS Success Package

CareCloud has released its new MIPS Dashboard to help eligible clinicians seamlessly capture and report on Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) regulations for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

According to a media release, the real-time dashboard is a part of the comprehensive CareCloud MIPS Success Package for 2018, which pairs intelligent software and tools with a customized MIPS Action Plan that is complementary for all CareCloud clients. This package follows CareCloud's Success Guarantee for 2017, which led the market in offering a no-cost penalty avoidance guarantee supported by dedicated account managers and software tools.

"The growth-oriented practices we work with see meeting MIPS obligations as an opportunity to position themselves competitively with commercial plans as well as with CMS," said Polly Friend, RN, CareCloud's senior director of clinical services. "For this reason, we've made the MIPS Success Program part of our EHR offering at no additional cost and have built an friendly dashboard for tracking and reporting outcomes that supports our clients' needs to compete across value-based reimbursement models."

CareCloud said that it offers providers integrating new MIPS regulations into their clinical workflows personalized support, efficient tracking and reporting workflows, and the integration of templates to streamline MIPS reporting. CareCloud has collaborated with its EHR clients to successfully design and execute their MIPS Action Plans to avoid costly penalties and optimize their payment incentives.

In addition, all CareCloud EHR clients have free access to the powerful MIPS Dashboard to complete their tracking and reporting in a one-stop-shop experience.

    Tea Forté Introduces ‘Matcha’ Collection

    Convenience meets tradition in Tea Forté’s new Ceremonial Matcha Bowl Set and the Matcha Single Steeps.

    The company said its spring harvested, shade grown, stone ground, organic matcha tea is best served in a centuries-old Japanese tea ceremony called chanoyu: a preparation technique known for its centering meditative qualities.

    "The launch of Tea Forté's Matcha collection represents our continued commitment to wellness and cultivating all the potential mental and physical health benefits of tea," says Tea Forté CEO Michael Gebrael. "In addition to our high quality Pure Matcha, we've also blended four distinct flavored Matcha varieties. Prepackaged in pouches measured out for a single serving, our Single Steeps Matcha is ideal for the office, travel, or to keep with you for a boost anytime."

    Tea Forté noted its handcrafted ceremonial tea bowl, handmade bamboo whisk and measuring ladle “encourages serene enjoyment of our premium Kosher, gluten-free and vegan matcha blends.” These include: Pure Matcha, Chocolate Matcha, Coconut Matcha, Ginger Matcha, and Chai Matcha.

    According to a release, in addition to its distinctive taste, matcha is prized for its health benefits. Steeped green tea contains only the antioxidants that can be extracted in water, while with matcha, the whole leaf is consumed.
