CMS Plans to Give MIPS an Overhaul

Key clinical point: The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services proposes an overhaul to the Merit-based Incentive Payment System track of the Quality Payment Program.

Major finding: The move is intended to make measures more meaningful to clinicians.

Study details: Measures would be more focused to specialties through Merit-based Incentive Payment System Value Pathways, with all those reporting on a specialty or condition reporting on more streamlined measures.

Disclosures: CMS, as the issuer of the rules, makes no disclosures.
