How Carequality Supports MIPS Requirements

In 2021, CMS launched a new alternative Promoting Interoperability measure for the CMS Merit-based Incentive Payment System. This is good news for the Carequality community. Carequality Connections may fulfill the “HIE Bi-directional Exchange” measure – a yes/no attestation worth 40 points – when they share health information via the Carequality Interoperability Framework.

If your organization both initiates and responds to queries from other participating organizations in Carequality, then you may request a letter of support from Carequality for the “HIE Bi-directional Exchange” measure. Interested organizations may email admin@carequality.org. Please include in your request for a letter:

  1. Your organization name as you would like it to appear in the letter;
  2. The name you appear in the Carequality Directory, if different than for the letter;
  3. The name of your Implementer for Carequality Connectivity;
  4. Your EHR Vendor, if different from your Implementer; and
  5. The year that you first began exchange through Carequality.

Please keep in mind that Requirements may change each Performance Year (PY) due to policy changes.
