NEW AGS Factsheet: 2017 MIPS Quality Measures Relevant to Geriatrics
March 17th, 2017
To help members participate in quality reporting under the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) created under the Medicare Access & CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), a workgroup of the AGS Quality and Performance Measurement Committee reviewed the 300+ quality measures approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for reporting in 2017 and identified 10 quality measures that were (1) most likely to be relevant to geriatricians' clinical practices and (2) most likely to be measures for which geriatricians will perform well relative to other clinicians.
