For performance year 2019, providers need to submit Quality data for the full year and this category will comprise 45% of the final MIPS score; read more to learn how to select quality measures to report.
How many measures?
Providers need to submit six quality measures, at least one of which needs to be an outcome or high-priority measure. Visit the NYC REACH resource library to download a list of electronic clinical quality measures that relate to chronic disease prevention.
Select measures on which your practice outperforms other practices nationwide, not only measures that appear high. For example, your practice may perform diabetes eye exams for 95% of eligible patients. This may seem high, but in fact 95% is only in the 4th decile (30-39th percentiles) nationwide, which means your practice would only receive 40% of the possible points available for the measure.
