2019 MIPS Proposed Rule: Key Highlights

By Erin Heilman. Posted Jul 20, 2018 in Quality Reporting, MACRA/MIPS Program, Academy

What’s in store for year three of the Quality Payment Program (QPP)? Last week, CMS dropped the 2019 QPP proposed rule. In addition to focusing on improving patient care by greatly reducing paperwork requirements for clinicians, it includes some major MIPS changes such as removing several process-based quality measures, overhauling the newly named Promoting Interoperability category and modifying technical requirements. Keep in mind that these are just the proposed changes. The final rule will come out in late fall.

If you don’t have time to read through the full 1,473-page proposed rule (…because you have a life and stuff), check out the links below for a few helpful summaries and breakdowns of the proposed QPP changes:
