From the July 2020 Webinar, Maximizing Your Performance in the Promoting Interoperability Category for Solo and Small Group Practices
Can you explain the Promoting Interoperability exception?
Under the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), you may qualify for re-weighting of the PI performance category (to 0%) if you meet certain criteria. MIPS-eligible clinicians, groups, and virtual groups may submit a MIPS Promoting Interoperability Performance Category Hardship Exception Application citing one of the following specified reasons:
- You’re a small practice
- You have decertified EHR technology
- You have insufficient Internet connectivity
- You face extreme and uncontrollable circumstances such as disaster, practice closure, severe financial distress or vendor issues
- You lack control over the availability of Certified Electronic Health Record Technology (CEHRT)
