S u MM e R 2017 37 TWO TRACKS FOR PARTICIPATION The Quality Payment Program has two tracks that clinicians can choose from: Merit-based Incentive Payment Systems (M I p S) and Advanced Alternative Payment Models (A p Ms). The M I p S apply not only to physicians, but also to physician assistants, nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists and nurse anesthetists. Data collection and reporting are the foundations of the program. Clinicians report data in multiple categories: • Quality performance (e.g., documentation of current medications in the medical record, colorectal cancer screening) • Improvement activities (e.g., care transition documentation practices improvement, collection and use of experience and satisfaction data on access) • Advancing care information (e.g., e-prescribing, public health record reporting) CMS says the program offers a "f lexible, pick-your-own pace approach to the initial years of the program." Under the regulations, clinicians reporting for 2017 can report varying numbers of quality measures for periods between 90 days and one year. Those who want to participate fully should generally report data in six categories. Groups should report data in 15 categories covering one year. Data must be reported by National Provider Identification numbers tied to a Tax Identification Number.
