The system has been updated so that whenever any modifications are made to the Performance period, Eligible clinicians, Practice (TIN), Facility, Quality Reporting, Promoting Interoperability Exemption, and Promoting Interoperability Measures areas in the MIPS Dashboard Configuration dialog, and then saved, a Recalculate MIPS Results warning dialog will appear alerting you that because of the configuration changes made, you will need to recalculate any currently calculated MIPS results to get the most accurate results based on those configuration changes.

After you click the OK button, the system will remove any previously saved calculations for the Quality and Promoting Interoperability measures. These measures will then have to be recalculated based on the changes made in the MIPS Dashboard Configuration dialog.

Due to the measured (or weighted) score being available via the QPP.CMS.GOV website (as the Measured Score for the Cost category), the Cost dialog has been updated to allow you to easily enter your weighted (i.e. measured) score from CMS in the Cost Score field. The value entered in this field will then be reflected in the Cost section of the MIPS Dashboard. Do note, that due to nature of this change, any cost values were entered for this category in previous versions, will be reset to zero, and you will need to reconfigure your Cost Score.

The Import Document dialog has been updated and redesigned to better alert you when there are existing patients that match the patient in the file you are about to import. In the initial Import Document screen, the File and File Format fields have moved to the top of the dialog, followed by the Import options section, and then Import Configuration  section. In the Import options section, the Import data to an existing patient chart and the Create new patient from imported data options from previous versions, have been removed.

In the initial Import Document screen, the existing options for importing the file, in the new rearranged format, work as in previous versions.

After the Next button has been clicked, the second Import Document screen will appear. This second Import Document dialog has been updated and redesigned with a new Import Type section that has a New patient option, an Existing patient option, and a Practice field.

The Patient information section on the left, will list any patient Name, Birth Sex, Date of Birth, Address, Phone, and Email information from the import file.

If there are any possible patient matches for the file being imported, the second Import Document screen will default with the Existing patient option selected, and the probable patient matches will appear in the Select patient section to the right. Likewise, the Practice field, in the Import Type section, will be grayed out and inactive.

If the system does not find any possible matches, the second Import Document screen will default with the New patient option selected, and the Practice field will be active, allowing you select an applicable practice. Likewise, the Select patient section will be grayed out and inactive.

When in the second Import Document screen, you can modify the Import Type options as desired, and the applicable fields will become active or inactive as mentioned above. Likewise, you can modify the search criteria, when the Existing patient option is selected, to find and highlight the applicable patient, if needed. Once the applicable options are selected as desired, you can click the Finish button to import the patient file into Clinical.
