MACRA Webinar: A MIPS Deep Dive - How the Performance categories Work

The Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) track of MACRA is a performance-based competition. There will be winners and losers. Your rating will be published on the CMS website and poor performance will result in less compensation or a negative payment adjustment.

Educating yourself now on the complex scoring methods of MIPS is integral to your outcome in the future, as is knowing what tools to anticipate from your EHR vendor. Your software will be an important role in your success. 

In this webinar, we’ll focus on:  

  • The four performance categories of MIPS 
  • The complex scoring mechanisms of each MIPS performance category
  • How quality measurement has changed and how it will work under MIPS
  • Steps you need to take to ensure your success
