Promoting Interoperability Scoring (2022)

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 several objectives and individual measures for the 2022 performance year. One bonus point feature is worth ten points while a second bonus feature is worth five points.

  • The Prevention of Information Blocking Attestation,
  • The ONC Direct Review Attestation, and;
  • The security risk analysis measure.
