CMS LAN Webinar: Using Improvement Activities to Enhance Performance Scores

Improvement Activities under MIPS is a critical performance category that is based on how much your practice participates in activities that improve clinical practice. Choosing the right activities can benefit your patients and practice and help you earn a good MIPS score. This upcoming event will focus on understanding how to choose and leverage your improvement activities to enhance your overall performance score. A panel of experts will review the types of improvement activities you should be considering, discuss how improvement activities are scored and offer suggestions for how to leverage your improvement work to enhance your MIPS scores in other areas. We will also review special conditions for small group practices and solo practitioners. Please join us to learn from and dialogue with the panelists for this event.
