Industry-first physician compensation software

Accurate tracking and reporting of clinical pay and performance builds trust and increases engagement with physicians and APPs and enables leadership to establish, track, and deliver upon organizational objectives that drive meaningful performance improvement. Designed to address a spectrum of physician, leadership and other key stakeholder needs, PPMT™ combines years of health care compensation insight and expertise with an intuitive, automated technology platform to help drive physician and APP performance and support the transition from volume to value-based care.


PPMT™ can help organizations better understand, prepare for, and develop a response plan to address upcoming Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) changes with CPT code impact analysis capabilities.

Overview

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) continues to adjust its PFS, which has material implications on professional services reimbursement and physician and APP compensation. It is critical that organizations using productivity-based plans understand the impact of these changes on reported physician and APP productivity levels, employed and independent physician compensation arrangements, and budgets. PPMT’s CPT Code Impact Analysis can help organizations better understand, prepare for, and develop a response plan to address the impact of upcoming PFS changes. Assessing current and proposed CPT code information provides leaders visibility into which physicians or groups are most directly impacted by a change in scale values.
