Eligible MIPS clinicians, or clinicians that bill more than $30,000 to Medicare, and provide care to more than 100 Medicare patients per year, are required to attest to 3 MIPS performance categories: Quality, Advancing Care Information, and Improvement Activities.
Measures within the Advancing Care Information category include:
- Security Risk Analysis, ePrescribing,
- Provide Patient Access,
- Health Information Exchange,
- View, Download, or Transmit (VDT),
- Patient-Specific Education,
- Secure Messaging,
- Medication Reconciliation,
- Immunization Registry Reporting,
- Syndromic Surveillance Reporting,
- and Specialized Registry Reporting.
Many measures, such as Security Risk Analysis, ePrescribing, Provide Patient Access, and Health Information Exchange are required for a base score in the Advancing Care Information category. Other measures are used to adjust the overall category score while some simply serve as a bonus adjustment to the overall category score. Detailed information on the measures for Advancing Care Information can be found here (https://qpp.cms.gov/measures/aci).
