The MIPS Improvement Activities (IA) performance category measures a clinician or group’s engagement in clinical activities that improve clinical practice, care delivery, and outcomes. It is one of four categories under the MIPS program. This year clinicians will need to attest to Improvement Activities, in addition to reporting the MIPS Quality and Promoting Interoperability categories, to ensure they reach the new minimum threshold of 60 points to avoid a MIPS penalty. This article provides an overview of the Improvement Activities category, explains how to maximize MIPS points, and offers tips on selecting activities most relevant to a clinician’s practice.
