The Quality category asks that clinicians report on six measures at least 70% of the time that they apply.
Each of those six measures counts anywhere from 1 to 10 points. A 3 point minimum score will be assigned to solo clinicians and groups of 15 or fewer for any measure that:
- does not satisfy the 70% reporting frequency requirement
- lacks 20 cases in the denominator.
If each of the above is false, the actual performance on the measure will be considered by comparing the clinician’s score to a benchmark comprised all all-clinician performance two years earlier.
Ultimately, a clinician or small group’s Quality score is based on the sum of points for the six best scoring measures reported. Small practice quality scores will also include 6 point bonus.
Reporting data from RevolutionEHR by electronic measures represents a path to qualify for many of these opportunities. For more information on this concept, see Electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs)
