2019 MIPS Improvement Activity IA_PSPA_17: Implementation of analytic capabilities to manage total cost of care for practice population


Activity Description

In order to receive credit for this activity, a MIPS eligible clinician must conduct or build the capacity to conduct analytic activities to manage total cost of care for the practice population. Examples of these activities could include:

  • 1.) Train appropriate staff on interpretation of cost and utilization information;
  • 2.) Use available data regularly to analyze opportunities to reduce cost through improved care. An example of a platform with the necessary analytic capability to do this is the American Society for Gastrointestinal (GI) Endoscopy’s GI Operations Benchmarking Platform.
