The Quality Measures Report monitors a clinician’s progress toward the reporting of the Quality category of the MIPS program. Create a Quality Measure report to generate a report that tracks a provider’s progress on health care processes, outcomes, and patient experiences of their care.

Note:

  • The Quality Measures Dashboard automatically ends the session after 15 minutes of inactivity and queued reports continue to generate if the session ends.
  • When users are done running or viewing reports, logout of the Quality Measures Dashboard to end the session. Or, log out of Kareo to end both sessions.

    2. Report Header: Displays the report ID, description, the measurement period, when the report was created for which provider and by which user. Click Show more to view additional report details.
    3. Patient Count: Number of active patients submitted for consideration.
    4. Measure Category Tabs: Click on a tab to view measures grouped by a discipline or topic area. The available tabs may vary based on the measures selected when the report was created. Available categories and supported measures:

  1. The following displays for each selected measure:
    • Measure Description: The measure number and description. If the measure has more than one numerator, each numerator will appear as separate measures.
    • Performance Rate: Indicates the percentage of patients who meet the measure after exclusions and exceptions. Hover over the bar to view the MIPS Performance Benchmark for the measure. Click on the bar to view additional benchmark details.
    • Initial Patient Population (IPP): Number of patients that were considered for inclusion in the measure.
    • Denominator (Den.): A subset of the IPP eligible for the measure and also the upper limit for the numerator when considering measure performance rate.
    • Exclusions (Excl.): A subset of the Denominator which are not considered for inclusion in the Numerator.
    • Numerator (Num.): A subset of the Denominator after all criteria (processes or outcomes expected) for each patient, procedure, or other unit of measurement, are applied.
    • Exceptions (Excep.): A subset of the Denominator which are considered for Numerator membership after Exclusions. Patients or episodes from this smaller subset that are not ultimately included in the numerator are Exceptions.
    • Performance Not Met: Only applicable in measure logic for some MIPS measures. Evaluated before numerator for patient or episode cases in which data required by the measure was recorded successfully but cases did not meet performance requirement. Excluded/included according to specific measure logic.
