The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is hosting a webinar on April 18 from 1 to 2 pm ET to provide information about facility-based measurement for the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) in the 2019 performance year. Facility-based measurement enables clinicians to receive a score for the Quality and Cost categories of MIPS, without the need to collect and report on measures separately. Eligible providers would receive the MIPS score in those categories associated with the same percentile as their hospital’s score in the Hospital Value Based Purchasing Program.
Promoting Interoperability Performance Category
CMS is also hosting a webinar on April 10 from 1 to 2 pm ET to provide information on the Promoting Interoperability (PI) performance category of the MIPS in Year 3 (2019) of the Quality Payment Program.
