Final requirements for full participation in MIPS during the 2017 performance period
Eligible clinicians and groups must report 6 measures, including 1 outcome measure or, if an outcome measure is not available, 1 other high-priority measure (appropriate use, patient safety, efficiency, care coordination or patient experience).
CMS will calculate Cost measures based on submitted Medicare Part B claims data, so there are no additional reporting requirements for clinicians and groups under this performance category.
The Advancing Care Information score replaces Meaningful Use and focuses on the secure exchange of health information and the use of certified EHR technology
The Improvement Activities performance category rewards eligible clinicians and groups for participating in and completing patient-centered activities that have a proven association with improved health outcomes.
