Patient Safety and Practice Assessment
In order to receive credit for this activity, a MIPS eligible clinician must conduct or build the capacity to conduct analytic activities to manage total cost of care for the practice population.
Examples of these activities could include:
- Train appropriate staff on interpretation of cost and utilization information;
- Use available data regularly to analyze opportunities to reduce cost through improved care.
An example of a platform with the necessary analytic capability to do this is the American Society for Gastrointestinal (GI) Endoscopy’s GI Operations Benchmarking Platform.
Use of analytic capabilities to manage total cost of care for practice population (e.g. the American Society for Gastrointestinal (GI) Endoscopy’s GI Operations Benchmarking Platform is a sufficient example of a tool used for identifying opportunities to reduce cost).
1) Staff Training - Documentation of staff training on interpretation of cost and utilization information (e.g. training certificate); or
2) Cost/Resource Use Data - Availability of cost/resource use data for the practice population that is used regularly to analyze opportunities to reduce cost.
