This resource answers frequently asked questions about the 2019 Facility-based Preview for select Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) eligible clinicians, groups, and virtual groups whose primary health care responsibilities take place in hospital settings.

This fact sheet provides an overview of the MIPS Promoting Interoperability performance category, which promotes patient engagement and the electronic exchange of health information using certified electronic health record technology.
