MIPS Value Pathways (MVPs)

CMS is updating the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs) participation tracks to reduce reporting burden, encourage meaningful participation, and improve patient outcomes.

MIPS Value Pathways (MVPs) are designed to align measures and activities from the four MIPS performance categories around a specialty, medical condition, or patient population, developed by specialty societies and other AMA stakeholders. The goal is to move away from siloed reporting of measures and activities towards focused sets of measures and activities that are more meaningful to a clinician's practice, specialty, or public health priority. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CMS postponed MVP implementation and will propose an initial set of MVPs and detailed scoring policies in future rulemaking for the 2022 performance period. 

As we receive more information on MVPs, HCMS will provide practices and physicians with resources and summaries.
