MIPS (Merit-based Incentive Payment) is one of the pathway under MACRA QPP which streamlines multiple quality reporting programs and provides payment adjustments to eligible clinicians based on their performance. Under MIPS, your payment adjustments will be determined by your Composite Performance Score. And these scores would be made publically available in the Physician Compare website. In this webinar, we will understand how the composite score is calculated and tips for maximizing your score in each of the Performance Categories.
