"The two words ‘information’ and ‘communication’ are often used interchangeably, but they signify quite different things. Information is giving out; communication is getting through." -- Sydney J. Harris

Reducing the Burden of Data Reporting

Based on provider feedback, internal assessments, and market research, MNCM is in the process of developing a new suite of software to alleviate provider data reporting burden. The new approach will allow MNCM to implement automated data extraction methods with participating providers to retrieve encounter data necessary for measurement. Once encounter data is retrieved, MNCM will be able to apply measurement specifications centrally to determine the appropriate measure denominators and numerators reducing the burden of data reporting for medical groups.

Pilot Testing

MNCM is currently recruiting provider organizations to pilot this approach and expects to begin pilot testing in early 2019. Organizations that are interested in reducing their reporting burden can contact Will Muenchow, Director of Information Technology and Data Integrity, at muenchow@mncm.org.
