Don't MIPS Out With Patient Navigator Program: Focus MI
ACC’s Patient Navigator Program: Focus MI quality campaign is approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as a high-weight Improvement Activity under the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).
Under MIPS, clinicians must complete up to four Improvement Activities for a minimum of 90 days. CMS has assigned high or medium “weights” to Improvement Activities, allowing clinicians the option of completing two high-weight, four medium-weight, or a combo of one high-weight and two medium-weight activities to receive MIPS credit.
Should you wish to use your hospital’s participation in Patient Navigator Program: Focus MI as one of your MIPS Improvement Activities, you will need to personally attest to participation no later than Oct. 1, 2018.
