Meaningful Use Under MIPS 

Medicare is merging the nation's Electronic Health Record Incentive Program (aka Meaningful Use) into the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) as a means to streamline multiple value-based programs. The program is set to begin January 2017.

Under MIPS, healthcare providers will receive a single annual quality score determined by the following four components:
  • Meaningful Use (MU)/Advanced Care Information (ACI) of certified EHR technology
  • Quality (PQRS/VBM)
  • Resource use
  • Clinical practice improvement
The ACI Category counts for 25 percent of the total MIPS score. 

Join guest speaker Tara Hatfield from Purdue Health Advisors as she examines the objectives and measures that comprise the Base Score and the Performance Score of the ACI category and describes the options that clinicians have in choosing from the available measures.  

To be best prepared for this event, please have your most recent MU performance reports so that you can actively plan for achieving success under MIPS during the event.

What you will learn
  • How the ACI category composite score is calculated
  • How to determine which current MU measures are used in the Base Score and which ones are used to calculate the Performance Score
  • How to state your plan for achieving full credit for the ACI category of MIPS
