Results From the First Year of MIPS

By Stephanie Osorno. Posted Feb 08, 2019 in Academy, MACRA/MIPS Program, Quality Reporting

In 2017, health care organizations were hit with a new quality reporting challenge: MIPS. Dun dun dun. Through MIPS, under the Quality Payment Program (QPP), physician Medicare reimbursements would either be incentivized or penalized based on their performance.

For the first year of MIPS, eligible clinicians were required to submit measures in at least one of the three MIPS categories: Quality, Promoting Interoperability (formerly Advancing Care Information) and Improvement Activities.

So how did our clients perform in MIPS 2017? The infographic below highlights Medisolv’s 2017 MIPS results in comparison to the 2017 nationwide MIPS results. Collectively, Medisolv’s clients earned a total average MIPS score of 88 points, which was 14 points higher than the national average of 74 points. Medisolv’s small and rural practices also outperformed expectations with significantly higher scores than the national average. Not to brag wait, we want to brag a little. Our clients are kind of a big deal! 


Regardless of practice size, our clinical experts are dedicated to providing clients with ongoing insight and guidance on category requirements, measure selection, program changes and quality performance improvement for MIPS.
