Quality & Practice


Within the Quality Payment Program, there are 2 paths providers can choose and use to report quality data:


The Quality category of MIPS, replaces the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) and is responsible for 60% of your total MIPS score.

MIPS Quality Score

In order to comply with 2017 reporting requirements, most eligible clinicians must report on 6 quality measures, including 1 outcome measure. If an outcome measure is not available, you must then select 1 high priority measure. To help our members with their quality reporting, AAPM&R has created a MIPS Quality Measures Guide to help them explore the measures that may be most applicable to the specialty.

All of your MIPS reporting can be completed using the Spine Quality Outcomes Database.
