MIPS - Advancing Care Information - Syndromic Surveillance Reporting

Advancing Care Information Measures
Category ACI
Description The MIPS eligible clinician is in active engagement with a public health agency to submit syndromic surveillance data from a urgent care ambulatory setting where the jurisdiction accepts syndromic data from such settings and the standards are clearly defined. Earn a 5 % bonus in the advancing care information performance category score for submitting to one or more public health or clinical data registries.
Definition of Terms
  • Active engagement – the MIPS eligible clinician is in the process of moving towards sending ”production data” to a public health agency (PHA) or clinical data registry (CDR), or is sending production data to a PHA or CDR.

Active engagement may be demonstrated in one of the following ways:

  • Option 1 – Completed Registration to Submit Data: The MIPS eligible clinician registered to submit data with the PHA or, where applicable, the CDR to which the information is being submitted; registration was completed within 60 days after the start of the MIPS performance period; and the MIPS eligible clinician is awaiting an invitation from the PHA or CDR to begin testing and validation. This option allows MIPS eligible clinicians to meet the measure when the PHA or the CDR has limited resources to initiate the testing and validation process. MIPS eligible clinicians who have registered in previous years do not need to submit an additional registration to meet this requirement for each MIPS performance period.
  • Option 2 – Testing and Validation: The MIPS eligible clinician is in the process of testing and validation of the electronic submission of data. MIPS eligible clinicians must respond to requests from the PHA or, where applicable, the CDR within 30 days; failure to respond twice within a MIPS performance period would result in that MIPS eligible clinician not meeting the measure.
  • Option 3 – Production: The MIPS eligible clinician has completed testing and validation of the electronic submission and is electronically submitting production data to the PHA or CDR.
