MIPS Measures



Quality Measures

The MIPS Quality Performance Category is closely related to its predecessor, the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS). Much like PQRS, the Quality Performance Category is able to be reported individually or as a group, and requires the submission of quality measure information to CMS.

The most important change is that once your data is reviewed, the reimbursement incentive / penalty is based not just on successful reporting, but how the reported quality scores compare to other providers. Each measure is worth up to ten points. The points are determined by assessing how the score stacks up compared to all other providers. Learn More

ACI Measures

This category is Meaningful Use updated to make it more customizable, flexible, and focused on patient engagement and interoperability.

Providers can achieve half of the category score by reporting at least one use case for each available measure. Additional points are available for high performance scores on the reported measures and public health reporting. This is a major simplification to the current convoluted regulations for Meaningful Use. Learn More

Improvement Activities

The Improvement Activities category is worth 15% of your MIPS Composite Performance Score. Participants must either report two high-weight improvement activities, or four medium-weight improvement activities.

Eligible clinicians and groups from small practices, rural practices, or practices located in geographic health professional shortage areas (HPSAs), and non-patient facing MIPS-eligible clinicians will only have to report one high-weight improvement activity or two medium-weight activities. Activities that utilize CEHRT will not only count for the improvement activities performance category score, but the ACI performance category score as well. Learn More
