QPP/MIPS Success with Longitudinal Quality Measurement
2:00pm - 3:00pmFriday, March 9
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
The Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) requires quality measurement as a key component in determining physician reimbursement. This session highlights the importance of using longitudinal data from all providers to improve the accuracy and completeness of quality reporting. This research presents data from the KHIN Health Information Exchange on primary care practices, where 53,339 patients visited 214 separate sites of care during a measurement period. The session examines quality measure computation using data from the primary care practices and compares this with quality measures computed from the data in the KHIN Health Information Exchange. The session will focus on two methods to improve the completeness of quality reporting include the use of interoperability standards and qualified registries. Complete information is essential to accurately calculate both process measures, such as preventative screening, and care outcomes measures.
