Increase Improvement Activities Score:
Send care summaries, or continuity of care documents (CCDs), into the SHARE health information exchange, which counts as medium weight activity for the Improvement activities category (small practices need 2 medium-weighted activities or 1 high-weighted activity). You can also sign up with Direct Messaging from SHARE to send care summaries as part of referrals to other Direct-enabled providers.
Measure description: The MIPS-eligible clinician that transitions or refers their patient to another setting of care or health care clinician (1) uses CEHRT to create a summary of care record; and (2) electronically transmits the summary to a receiving health care clinician for at least one transition of care or referral.
Increase providers' cost category score:
Join SHARE and receive clinical results on your patients to improve your overall costs and utilization by educating patients on hospital utilization. (The cost category will measure the Medicare Part A and Part B costs of care related to inpatient hospital visits.) The weight of the cost category will account for 10% of overall MIPS score, so getting started now will be important to prepare for this shift.
