Component/s: Implementation Guidance
Please provide your feedback-
For Performance Year 2021 QPP MIPS has added the following new Promoting Interoperability (PI) Measure (Alternative).
Measure ID : PI_HIE_5
Measure Name : Health Information Exchange (HIE) Bi-Directional Exchange
Reporting Parameters : Yes/No
Alternative Measure : QPP CMS finalized to add this new HIE Bi-Directional Exchange measure to the HIE objective as an optional alternative to the two existing measures:
PI_HIE_3 : Support Electronic Referral Loops by Sending Health Information measure
PI_HIE_4: Support Electronic Referral Loops by Receiving and Incorporating Health Information measure.
While submitting the data for Performance Year 2021 using QRDA-III
1.The EC has to send data only for PI_HIE_5 in QRDA-III, and not for PI_HIE_4 and PI_HIE_3 ?
2.If the answer to #1 is 'NO' then EC is supposed to select exclusions for PI_HIE_4 and PI_HIE_3 or the Denominator /Numerator counts also ?
