2021 MIPS IA_PSPA_32: Use of CDC Guideline for Clinical Decision Support to Prescribe Opioids for Chronic Pain via Clinical Decision Support

Activity ID

IA_PSPA_32

Activity Weighting

High

Subcategory Name

Patient Safety and Practice Assessment

Activity Description

In order to receive credit for this activity, MIPS eligible clinicians must utilize the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain via clinical decision support (CDS). For CDS to be most effective, it needs to be built directly into the clinician workflow and support decision making on a specific patient at the point of care. Specific examples of how the guideline could be incorporated into a CDS workflow include, but are not limited to: electronic health record (EHR)-based prescribing prompts, order sets that require review of guidelines before prescriptions can be entered, and prompts requiring review of guidelines before a subsequent action can be taken in the record.

Objective

Make Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain via clinical decision support (CDS) part of eligible clinicians' workflow, thus improving prescription practices, protecting patients at risk for addition and/or overdose, and helping to address the opioid epidemic.

Suggested Documentation

Evidence of eligible clinicians utilizing the CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain via CDS. Include all of the following elements:

1) CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain via CDS within eligible clinicians’ workflow – Evidence that the CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain is available to eligible clinician(s) via CDS, and that the guideline is incorporated into eligible clinicians’ workflow. May include: electronic health record-based prescribing prompts, chronic pain order sets with opiate prescribing based on CDC Guidelines, or prompts requiring review of guidelines before a subsequent action can be taken in the record; AND
2) Use of Guideline in CDS – Documentation of use of CDC guideline during patient care during the 90 day or year-long attestation period.
