The Quality category is one of four performance categories that make up a clinician’s final MIPS score. This category, which makes up 30% of the final score, assesses the quality of care a provider delivers and is measured by the provider’s quality measures score.
How is your Quality performance score calculated? Scores are determined based on performance related to healthcare processes, outcomes, and patient-care experiences. Important steps to remember for reporting data include understanding reporting requirements, choosing which measures to report on, collecting data, submitting data, and reviewing CMS performance feedback.
The Quality performance category has a 12-month performance period from January 1st to December 31st. To meet requirements, providers must report 6 quality measures, including one outcome-based measure or high priority measure. A full list of 2022 quality measures can be found here. It would help to choose measures that are already being tracked in your group’s Electronic Medical Record (EMR) to minimize workflow changes and avoid manual data collection.
The submission period will begin on January 4, 2023 and end no later than March 31, 2023. Data submitted to the HCIS registry will be reviewed and validated by our team before it is submitted to CMS. Preliminary feedback is available directly after your data is submitted to CMS and final CMS performance feedback will be available in Summer 2023.
HCIS can help you optimize your reporting to earn the highest score possible. In addition, clinicians using HCIS Qualified registry will be able to see estimated MIPS score and performance report prior to their data being submitted to CMS.
