We’re seeking measure concepts regardless of their stage of development — from high-level ideas to detailed quality measures already in use. Measure concepts submitted for prioritization can address various topics or include concepts for updating current MIPS measures. Concepts meeting the criteria for high priority will be assigned for development or refinement by the ACR Metrics Committee.
The measure concepts developed or refined by the committee into fully formed measures are intended for use in CMS MIPS, either through the ACR QCDR or as a MIPS clinical quality measure. Both measure reporting pathways are directly linked to physician payment under CMS MIPS regulation.
