MIPS Year Two: 13 Things to Know [SLIDESHOW]

By Erin Heilman. Posted Nov 03, 2017 in Academy, Quality Reporting, MACRA/MIPS Program

As October closed, CMS announced a new initiative called the "Patients Over Paperwork" initiative. The goal is to reduce the regulatory reporting burden put on clinicians. CMS wants to continue their transition to paying for value and quality, but redefine what it means to pay for value and quality. Their new initiative “aims to focus on outcome-based measures going forward, as opposed to trying to micromanage processes.”

In the same week, CMS dropped the Quality Payment Program (QPP) final rule for year two. This new initiative is reflected in the changes found within the 1,653-page final rule. Based on the new requirements, it's clear that CMS is attempting to ease the transition into QPP for all clinicians and provide relief to small practices.
