The Quality category of MIPS is responsible for 45% of your total MIPS score.

  

 

In order to comply with 2020 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. AAPM&R has created a MIPS Quality Measures Guide to help members explore the measures that may be most applicable to the specialty.
