Keet Outcomes Clients Earn Exceptional Performance Scores in Medicare Quality Care Program 

Keet Outcomes Clients Earn Exceptional Performance Scores in Medicare Quality Care Program 

Providers using Keet Outcomes lead the way in demonstrating the value of rehab therapy 

Austin, TX - August 13, 2020 - Keet Inc., (“Keet”), a leading patient engagement and clinical outcomes company, announced today that 100% of clients submitting 2019 outcomes data through the company’s Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) have exceeded the performance threshold for the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), making them eligible for a bonus on every Medicare Part B payment collected in 2021. Additionally, 98% of Keet Outcomes clients are recognized with Exceptional Performance scores, with clients earning an average 91.2 score and 24% earning a perfect 100-point score.  

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to announce our clients’ MIPS results,” said Holly Tayor, President and General Manager, Keet. “2019 was the first year rehab providers were eligible for the MIPS program and those choosing to voluntarily participate should be recognized for their contributions in demonstrating the value of physical therapy to the broader healthcare system. Our early-adopter clients placed their trust in both our technology and our understanding of value-based care to support them in navigating the complexities of the new program. I’m delighted for our clients, not simply because of the bonus they’ll realize in 2021, but also because their ability to demonstrate quality outcomes will give patients, referring providers and commercial payers visibility into the high quality of care they provide.”

Keet is the industry's only consolidated mobile platform for patient engagement, outcomes collection, analysis, reporting, and MIPS submission for rehab therapists. The powerful combination of patient engagement and outcomes allows providers to assign automated care plans to decrease care variability and deliver consistent clinical results. The Keet platform provisions, scores and trends patient reported outcomes allowing providers to adjust patient care plans during treatment to get better results for their patients, while simultaneously leveraging this data to meet MIPS quality reporting requirements.

Among Keet’s clients surpassing the exceptional bonus threshold was ProRehab, a large regional clinic in Indiana with 17 locations and over 100 therapists that is part of Confluent Health. “Keet was our easy button,” said Andrea Baumann, COO, ProRehab. “With Keet, we took our patient experience to the next level by offering patient engagement and outcomes in one solution, enabling us to easily satisfy MIPS requirements, maximize our reimbursement potential and compete for value-based contracts. Keet is focused on the future of our industry, staying innovative and, most important to us, is fully aligned with the ProRehab philosophy on care, outcomes and education - bringing us closer to our ultimate goal of providing quality care for our patients.” 

Medicare is required to post provider MIPS scores on their website after their second MIPS performance year, using the same 5-star rating system currently used for hospitals and post-acute facilities. Providers who voluntarily participated in MIPS for the 2019 reporting year will be the first rehab providers to have their ratings published starting in 2021.

“While many in our industry tried to downplay the importance of the MIPS program, it’s clear that not only is it here to stay, it’s a critical first step in the transition to value-based care.” said Taylor. “While we have long predicted the transition from fee for service, the economic pressures on the healthcare system are accelerating that transition. The federal legislation that created the MIPS program mandates that Medicare reimburse all providers through value-based models no later than 2022, which means 2021 will be the last year rehab providers can voluntarily participate and develop the competencies they need to succeed. We are heavily invested in helping our clients navigate these changes and are passionate about elevating rehab therapists up the value chain by helping them to objectively demonstrate the high quality, cost efficient care they provide.”

Keet Health Announces MIPS Guarantee for Therapists

First of its kind MIPS Guarantee for therapists eases the transition to value-based care by protecting providers and practices from costly MIPS penalties

Austin TX., November 8, 2018 – Keet Health Inc., (“Keet”), a leading patient engagement company, announced today its Merit Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Guarantee1 for outpatient rehab therapists. The MIPS Guarantee aims to make it easier for eligible clinicians to participate in MIPS by shielding providers and practices from downward payment adjustment thresholds under the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) reimbursement program. In the event a reporting provider or practice receives a penalty under the CMS MIPS reimbursement program, the cost of Keet Outcomes™ and the annual fees associated with the Medicare submission are guaranteed by Keet Health, Inc.

“At a time when the transition to value-based care (VBC) is picking up speed, the new MIPS eligibility for therapists offers an opportunity for our industry to develop the competencies needed to thrive in the new reimbursement landscape,” said Holly Taylor, Vice President and General Manager, Keet Health, Inc. “At Keet, MIPS isn’t seen as another reporting burden, but an opportunity to advance our profession into the future. We are committed to supporting physical therapy in the transition to VBC and, by offering this guarantee, are looking to mitigate any risk associated with quality reporting requirements.”

Keet Outcomes™ enables clinicians to measure the quality of care delivered and provides intuitive tools to drive continuous quality improvement - competencies that are instrumental for the transition from fee-for-service to value-based care. The solution supports outpatient rehab therapists in meeting payer incentive program requirements associated with alternative payment models. This includes MIPS which requires eligible clinicians to provide high-quality, efficient care that is supported by certified technology. For the first time since the inception of MIPS, therapists will be eligible clinicians beginning in 2019. With Keet Outcomes™, required data is automatically collected and submitted in a way that’s easy and convenient for patients, efficient for clinics, useful for providers, and actionable for management teams.

Keet Outcomes™ is powered by Intermountain Healthcare’s Rehab Outcomes Management System (Intermountain ROMS), the premier clinical outcomes registry and quality reporting system for physical and occupational therapy. Intermountain ROMS is backed by 18 years of experience and 10 years of peer-reviewed research published in such journals as Spine, Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Journal of Arthroplasty, JOSPT and PTJ. Intermountain Healthcare is a leading innovator in value-based care delivery.

“The Intermountain ROMS team is excited to help power the Keet Outcomes™ solution. With this offering, therapists can demonstrate their value, reduce variation in practice, and provide higher quality patient-centered care. We are confident that Keet Outcomes™ combined with Intermountain ROMS will help clinicians make better clinical decisions, improve the patient experience, and allow practices to thrive,” said Stephen Hunter PT, DPT, OCS, Rehab Services Internal Process Control Director at Intermountain Healthcare.

Keet believes that quality improvement starts with data and has designed Keet Outcomes™ to capture patient reported outcomes, identify care improvement opportunities through robust analytics, and handle quality reporting so providers can focus on increasing the value of their patient interactions without adding administrative burden.

“While many clinical outcome registries look to measure the care provided, Keet is focused on providing a holistic solution to improve patient care, not just measure it,” said Taylor. “We feel this is a natural progression of patient engagement and key to Keet’s overall strategy of helping clinicians move towards value-based care.”
