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):

Physicians are required to report at least six measures for the quality category of MIPS. Of the six measures, at least one must be an outcome or high priority measure.

2021 ImageGuide Registry Performance Measures

 

*All measures are within the Hospital Inpatient and Hospital Outpatient Services care settings.
