Quality Measures Dashboard

Updated: 08/14/2020

The Quality Measures Dashboard monitors a clinician’s progress toward the reporting of the Quality category of the MIPS program and the Medicaid Promoting Interoperability program.

MIPS: The Quality category is one of the four MIPS categories that determine a clinician’s overall score for Medicare reimbursement.  This category accounts for 45% of the clinician’s overall MIPS score.  This percentage can change due to a clinician’s Special Status, reweighing of other performance categories, exception applications or Alternative Payment Model (APM) participation.

Data for this category must be reported for a full calendar year. Eligible clinicians must report data on any six quality measures related to their specialty, including one outcome measure or one high-priority measure.

APM: An APM, is assigned the quality measures that they need to report to CMS. They are assigned by the APM administrator,  such as a hospital or medical center.

Medicaid Promoting Interoperability (formerly Meaningful Use): Medicaid eligible participants who are first-time participants must report data on a 90- day reporting period.  Medicaid eligible participants who are returning to the Medicaid PI program must report data for a full calendar year.  Eligible participants must report data on any six quality measures related to their scope of practice, including one outcome measure or one high-priority measure.
