Pain Outcomes and MIPS Requirements…#182

Those that choose to voluntarily report do not receive a payment adjustment regardless of how well, or poorly, they score. However, those that opt-in are eligible to receive a payment incentive or penalty based on their performance. Opt-in eligible clinicians may also choose to voluntarily report instead.  Choosing to opt-in requires your EMR or outcomes/data technology partner to partner with you to gather the right data, in the right cadence and to reveal your results to you in a transparent manner.  Which MIPS measures did you choose?  Here is one of our favorites. Under the Quality category ( 30% of total score: Report 6 measures, including one Outcome or other High Priority measure for 12 months on at least 70% of eligible encounters to receive a score against 2022 National Benchmarks). #182: Functional Outcome Assessment.  

MIPS Measure #182: Functional Outcome Assessment. Percentage of visits for patients aged 18 years and older with documentation of a current functional outcome assessment using a standardized functional outcome assessment tool on the date of the encounter AND documentation of a care plan based on identified functional outcome deficiencies on the date of the identified deficiencies. A standardized tool is a tool that has been normed and validated. Examples of tools for functional outcome assessment include, but are not limited to: Oswestry Disability Index (ODI), Roland Morris Disability/Activity Questionnaire (RM), Neck Disability Index (NDI), Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS), Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH), and Western Ontario and McMaster University Osteoarthritis Index Physical Function sub-scale (WOMAC-PF). Click here to hear more about how Celéri can help with gathering the assessment of your choice.  Note: A functional outcome assessment is multi-dimensional and quantifies pain and musculoskeletal/neuromusculoskeletal capacity; therefore the use of a standardized tool assessing pain alone, such as the visual analog scale (VAS), does not meet the criteria of a functional outcome assessment standardized tool.
