MIPS Individual Reporting Options


Individual clinicians can report via an EHR vendor/Qualified Registry/Qualified Clinical Data Registry or QCDR
MIPS Criteria for Individuals:

Quality - Report up to 6 quality measures (from MIPS measures and/or non-MIPS measures, or from one MIPS specialty-specific measures set), include at least one outcome measure for a minimum of 90 days, and at least 50% of the clinician’s eligible patients.  2017 MIPS Measures List.

Please know that measures availability varies based on the mechanism you choose to report to (e.g. EHR vs. Registry).
