About our project

The problem we solve: Quality measure reporting is how healthcare pays for performance. 90% of all payments to healthcare practices will be based on reporting. Yet it takes months for Electronic Health Record and billing companies months to update their products for successful reporting. Lazy simplifies tracking the different measure specifications, guidelines and data standards to submit data on quality measures in minutes.

About our solution: lazy offers a web service to help Electronic Health Record companies who sell to hospitals and healthcare practices offer quality measure reporting and submission using our quality measure library

Progress to date:

During our beta last year we acquired paid customers and submitted reports for hundreds clinicians.   We have also raised $100k via a convertible note and secured marketing partnership with a content distributor that can reach hundreds of thousands of clinicians.

How We Help Physicians

Healthcare providers who successfully report data can avoid penalties as the industry transitions away from a Fee For Service healthcare system towards an outcomes based healthcare system.

How We Help Hospitals

Quality measure reporting is not only an opportunity to avoid penalties under CMS' new Merit Incentive Payment System (MIPS) it's also a chance to explore Alternative Payment Models that offer a great opportunity to reduce costs and improve the quality of care.  All of these initiative depend on being able to track key quality and cost measures, which is hard enough with out the technical challenge of generating reports and completing submissions.  Let our API simplify some of this burden for you.

How We Help Partners

We offer software companies that collect data, such as Health Information Exchanges, collaboratives, and registries, access to our reporting API. Our API will handle the back end measurement, reporting and submission enhancing your products but relieving you from doing the maintenance.

Innovation Details

Intellectual Property Summary

We have developed processes and tools for enabling us to maintain our measure library of hundreds of quality measures

Clinical Information

Not applicable as our product focuses on the technical challenges related to reporting data to Medicare.

Regulatory Status

FDA clearance does not apply to our type of product but we are an approved Medicare reporting registry.

How we will use the funds raised

We will use the funds to help us broaden our reach during the reporting period ending in March 2016 and to prepare for the reporting in 2017. Specifically, funds will go towards sales and marketing activities including attendance at key industry events around quality measurement and value-based care where we can reach our prospective customers.  

Thank You

In our first year, we reached hundreds of clinicians and, with your help, we plan expand to enable thousands of clinicians to not only report data to Medicare and reduce costs, but to also help healthcare practices better use data to improve care.
