MIPS combines the following incentive programs into one: Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), the Value Modifier (VM or Value-Based Payment Modifier), and the Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR). Eligible professionals (EPs) will be measured and paid based on:

  1. Quality
  2. Resource use (Cost)
  3. Clinical practice improvement (Improvement Activities)
  4. Meaningful use of certified EHR technology (Advancing Care Information)

If participating in MIPS, the goal is to show proof of high-quality, efficient, and technology advanced care. It is a detailed process that requires teamwork and collaboration. Our team at Presence Health Partners will work with you to collect and provide information on each category that is up to CMS standards. MIPS participants receive a payment adjustment based on performance in four categories: 


  • Assesses the value of care to ensure patients get the right care at the right time
  • Replaces Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS)


  • Helps create efficiencies in Medicare spending
  • Replaces Value-Based Modifier
  • Calculated from submitted claims

Improvement Activities:

  • New performance category

  • Replaces Medicare EHR Incentive Program for Eligible Professionals, also known as meaningful use

Presence Health is committed to supporting providers through the reporting process for each measure and collecting the appropriate payment adjustment.
