Course Overview

Within the MIPS structure, four performance categories impact a clinician's reputation and financial success: Quality, Promoting Interoperability, Improvement Activities, and Cost.

Each performance category carries a specific weight that contributes to the MIPS Final Score.

CareerStep’s MACRA-MIPS Quality Professional course is designed for eligible healthcare professionals. It focuses on the Quality portion of MIPS — which replaces the Physician Quality Reporting System and makes up the bulk (45% in 2020 and 40% in 2021) of a clinician's MIPS score.
