Prioritize Your Quality Improvement Efforts with MIPScast™
The QPP Resource Center™ for the Midwest has integrated MIPScast™ into its web portal to help you prioritize your quality improvement efforts so they make the greatest impact. It's an interactive web app designed to easily import Quality Measures, calculate points earned, and accurately estimate your Merit-based Incentive Payment System or MIPS Final Score under the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Quality Payment Program (QPP).
MIPScast™ provides you with simple score comparisons so you can pick the quality measures, specialty set, and reporting methods (e.g. EHR, Registry, Claims) that yield the highest scores. With usability in mind, MIPScast™ allows you to see which MIPS categories are scoring the highest and lowest, save your work and continue later, and save multiple scoring scenarios for a single practice/clinician.
To use MIPScast™, you'll need to join the QPP Resource Center™ or, if you are already a member, login and make sure you complete the Readiness Assessment.
