The MIPS Quality Measures Dashboard monitors a clinician’s progress toward the reporting of the Quality category of the MIPS program. The Quality category is one of the three MIPS categories that determine a clinician’s overall score for Medicare reimbursement. This category accounts for 60% of the clinician’s overall score.
The dashboard is visible for Administrators and Providers.

Quality Measure Report
Each selected report measure will display in a white box with a description, performance score, and a breakdown of the measurement details.
View the Patient Gap List for a list of patient names that did not meet the measurement. This list allows you to add an exclusion reason for a patient that does not meet the measure into Kareo. Marking a patient as excluded, and providing an exclusion reason, will remove that patient from the denominator, thereby improving the score.
