Additional Improvement Activities added for 2020

NACOR has added the following Improvement Activities (IAs) for practices to choose for the 2020 reporting year, regarding Covid-19:

  • IA_ERP_1: Participation on Disaster Medical Assistance Team, registered for 6 months
  • IA_ERP_2: Participation in a 60-day or greater effort to support domestic or international humanitarian needs
  • IA_PM_14: Implementation of methodologies for improvements in longitudinal care management for high risk patients
  • IA_PM_18: Provide Clinical-Community Linkages

As a reminder, 50 percent of the clinicians must perform the activity for a consecutive 90-day period. Practices must document the date range that the Improvement Activity was performed in the practice list in the NACOR dashboard. For more information, email

To earn full credit for the Improvement Activity component you must earn 40 points. Medium weighted IAs are worth 10 points and high weighted activities are worth 20 points. If the practice or clinician qualifies for a special status, points may be doubled.
