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.

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