Replaces PQRS. Covers the quality of the care you deliver, based on performance measures created by CMS. You pick the measures of performance that best fit your practice.
This program replaces the Advancing Care Information, commonly known as Meaningful Use. You choose measures to advance the productive use of the healthcare information you create. This is done by sharing information with other clinicians or the patient. This includes: sharing test results, visit summaries, and therapeutic plans with the patient and other facilities to coordinate care.
This performance category includes an inventory of activities that assess how you improve your care processes, enhance patient engagement in care, and increase access to care. The inventory lets you choose activities for your practice from categories such as, enhancing care coordination, patient and clinician shared decision-making, and expansion of practice access.
This performance category replaces the VBM. The cost of the care you provide will be calculated by CMS based on your Medicare claims. MIPS uses cost measures to calculate the total cost of care during the year. For MIPS Reporting in 2018, this performance category will count towards your MIPS final score.
