The Quality category of the MIPS program replaces the previous CMS Incentive Program known as Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS). Most participants should report up to 6 quality measures, including at least one outcome measure or one high-priority measure. Data for the Quality category must be reported for a full year.
Clinicians should select measures based on their specialty, submission method, and the measures supported by their EHR vendor.
Kareo supports the following 22 measures. Follow the link for each measure’s definition and required documentation.
Note: Clinicians who wish to submit measures not listed below, should consider selecting the claims submission process. The claims submission option provides clinicians a wider variety of quality measures that may be more suitable to their specialty.
