MIPS Quality ID #220 (NQF 0425): Functional Status Change for Patients with Low Back Impairments
Steps to use the Public Access Survey to report Quality ID 220 for MIPS:
- It is required that you read and ensure your understanding of the measure specification for this quality measure. To download the measure specification, visit the CMS Quality Payment Program website: https://qpp.cms.gov/mips/explore-measures/quality-measures. Search under the Clinical Quality Measure Specifications. CMS requires MIPS measure specifications to be housed on the CMS Quality Payment Program website.
- Hint: make sure you understand how to calculate the Risk-Adjusted Functional Status Change Residual Score by following the steps described under Numerator/Definitions.
- Once you understand all details of the measure specifications, access the Public Access Survey below for your patients to take the survey at the time of Initial Evaluation, Progress Evaluations, and Discharge during the relevant episode of care.
- Each time your patient completes the survey, be sure to record the date of survey completion, the Current Functional Status score, and the Predicted Improvement (Change) Score. This will allow you to calculate the Risk-Adjusted Functional Status Change Residual Score as described in the Numerator of the measure specification.
