The American Association of Orthopaedic Executives completed its quality measures work today with the submission of three measures to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). These measures will be evaluated by the agency for potential inclusion in the 2016 measures under consideration list for the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).
CMS will announce the measures included in the MUC list on or before December 1, 2016. If these measures are selected, we would expect to see these measures implemented in 2018 at the earliest.
A whitepaper about the project is available for download in the AAOE store.
