Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) 2018


The Quality Payment Program makes Medicare better by helping you focus on care quality and the one thing that matters most – making patients healthier. The Quality Payment Program ends the Sustainable Growth Rate formula and gives you new tools, models, and resources to help you give your patients the best possible care. You can choose how you want to take part based on your practice size, specialty, location, or patient population.

MIPS is one of the Quality Payment Program's tracks the providers can choose from. Providers who participate in the traditional Medicare Part B will participate in MIPS and earn a performance-based payment adjustment based on practice-specific quality data.

MD-Reports and MIPS

Under MIPS, there are 4 performance categories that affect your future Medicare payments. Each performance category is scored by itself and has a specific weight that is part of the MIPS Final Score. The payment adjustment applied for MIPS eligible clinicians is based on the Final Score.

Our products and solutions automate the composite score elements that are used to calculate and monitor your MIPS score:

  • Quality (50%)
  • Promoting Interoperability(25%)
  • Improvement Activities (15%)
  • Cost (10%)

MD-Reports MIPS Advisor will guide clients through our specialty specific quality, and advanced care information. MD-Reports is ONC certified EHR system for 2014 meaningful use.

The MIPS Dashboard gives the practice, or individual provider details with respect to their MIPS composite score, and can easily navigate on improving overall score.
