Promoting Interoperability Scoring

To secure full credit towards the 25% weight of the MIPS Promoting Interoperability (PI) performance category, MIPS eligible clinicians or their groups must report on four different objectives consisting of a total of five measures for the 2020 performance year. There is one bonus point opportunity worth five points. The maximum number of points an EC can receive in the 2020 performance year is 105 points. Please note, however, that the score is capped at 100 percent. 

ECs or groups must conduct or review a security risk analysis outlined in the QPP final rule to qualify for any score in the Promoting Interoperability performance category. This is considered an unscored measure by CMS and is not included in the table above.

The objectives and measures:

Objectives Measures Maximum Points
e-Prescribing e-Prescribing** 10 points
Bonus: Query of Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) 5 points (bonus)

Public Health and Clinical Data Exchange Report to two different public health agencies or clinical data registries for any of the following:
Immunization Registry Reporting** Electronic Case Reporting**

** Exclusion available. 

The measures will be scored, depending on the measure, on the EC’s performance through the submission of a numerator or denominator or a “yes or no” attestation.

Details and specifications on each measure can be found in the Quality Payment Program Resource Library.
