Promoting Interoperability Submission Options & Scoring

Key Terms for Understanding PI (formerly ACI)

Base Score: to receive PI base score points, clinicians must provide either numerator/denominator or yes/no for each measure (which is specified within measure). This accounts for half the PI category score.

Performance Score: Beyond the 5 required measures, physicians can select measures that best fit their practice. They will then be ranked on performance for these measures. This will account for up to 90% of the PI category score.
