The PI performance category has undergone a complete makeover for 2019 MIPS performance year. This redesign affects how the measures are scored, the reweigting of points if exclusions are claimed, the bonus points and thus the PI score. Understand how this change impacts the PI category score and thus the MIPS score.
During the webinar “Get Ready for MIPS 2019”, we discussed the significant changes in all the performance categories and how 2019 version of MyMipsScore is equipped to handle them. Particularly how you can find the best Quality measures across multiple collection types, and how scoring and reweighting works for the newly restructured PI category. We have compiled a list of questions and answers from the webinar for your ready reference.
Last week, CMS released the QPP final rule for 2019. We will be doing a series of blogs and webinar to discuss the changes in details and how it impacts EHR developers and providers. However, there is one change that deserves a blog of it’s own. In my opinion, it is the biggest change since the start of Meaningful Use program almost a decade ago.
As the submissions for 2017 performance year wrap up, it’s perfect time to get started with 2018. In our previous blogs, we discussed the Quality and Cost categories. In this post, we will focus our attention on the Advancing Care Information (ACI) category and the noteworthy changes for performance year 2018.
