On February 29, 2016, AAPM&R submitted the following comment to CMS regarding the Draft Quality Measure Development Plan (MDP).
View the comment letter.
The MDP is an overview of known measurement and performance gaps, as well as recommendations from CMS on how to close those gaps through development, use and refinement of quality measures. The purpose of the MDP is to meet the requirements of the MACRA and serve as a strategic framework for the future of clinician quality measure development to support MIPS and APMs.
The final MDP will be posted on the CMS website on May 1, 2016. Your Academy will closely monitor this effort and advocate for effective and efficient ways for all physiatrists to meet MIPS requirements.
