The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is now offering Clinic Practice Improvement Activities Credit (CPIA) to MIPS-eligible clinicians or groups who participate in a new study.

Applications for the study will be accepted through January 31, 2017.

According to CMS:

CMS is conducting a CPIA study, as outlined in the MACRA final rule. Any clinician or group eligible for the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) that successfully participate in the study will receive full credit for the Improvement Activities performance category.

CMS is leading this study to:

  • Examine clinical workflows and data collection methods using different submission systems;
  • Understand the challenges clinicians face when collecting and reporting quality data; and
  • Make future recommendations for changes that will attempt to eliminate clinician burden, improve quality data collection and reporting, and enhance clinical care.

Who should apply:

  • MIPS-eligible clinicians and groups
  • Clinicians or groups that collect and submit quality measurement data to CMS

Study participants will have to meet the following requirements between January and December 2017:

  • Complete at least three survey questionnaires throughout the course of the study.
  • Participate in at least three focus groups.
  • Submit at least three clinician quality performance measures to CMS.
