In 2021, CMS proposes the following four key changes to the Quality Payment Program (QPP) that will impact quality measurement for ACOs and ACO participants:
The discontinuation of the CMS Web Interface.
The introduction of the alternative payment model (APM) Performance Pathway (APP).
The discontinuation of the APM scoring card.
The addition of the APM entity as a submitter type for MIPS.
Each change will create new challenges for ACOs and ACO participants. Organizations can successfully navigate these shifts by partnering with a robust quality measures solution that creates a complete picture by combining comprehensive data and measures information in performance visualizations. An inclusive quality measures solution also creates a thorough workflow by combining the monitoring and improving processes, then submitting performance to payers.
