2019 MIPS data submitted; preliminary scores available

The Anesthesia Quality Institute (AQI) has completed the submission of 2019 MIPS Quality and Improvement Activity data for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Final scores will not be available until July; however, preliminary scores are available through the CMS Enterprise Portal.

NACOR dashboard unlocked

AQI unlocked the NACOR dashboard on April 6, allowing practices to edit their practice and provider lists. Providers who have retired or left a practice prior to January 1, 2020 should have their status set to "removed" on the provider list. Setting providers to "remove" will not impact historical data. For more information email AskAQI@asahq.org.

Quality reporting practices can now begin the enrollment process for Anesthesia Quality Institute's (AQI) 2020 NACOR Quality Reporting by completing the new online order form. NACOR is a designated QR and QCDR for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' Quality Payment Program.

AQI's NACOR quality reporting options include the following offerings in 2020 to ensure that NACOR remains the leader in anesthesiology: Quality Concierge, NACOR Quality Reporting, NACOR Benchmarking and NACOR Basic.
