Performance Measures:

Practices/hospitals participating in the registry will receive performance calculations for all ImageGuide performance measures. Performance will be provided at the practice/hospital level, office location level, and for each individual participating physician.

CMS Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS):

In 2018, physicians are required to report at least six measures for 60% of the imaging studies. Of the six measures, at least one must be an outcome or high priority measure. IMPORTANT: Performance rates of 0% for normal measures and 100% for inverse measures will not count towards the six measure minimum.
