MACRA Measure Definitions

Under MIPS, CMS evaluates your performance across multiple performance categories that lead to improved quality and value in our healthcare system. The Quality Category makes up 55% of your Composite Performance Score. This category covers the quality of care you deliver, based on performance measures created by CMS, as well as medical professional and stakeholder groups. While Graphium Health will report quality data for 16 measures, CMS will only consider the top 6 measures. Below is a list of the 16 MACRA measures Graphium supports.
