Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently made the announcement of renaming the MIPS performance category ACI to “Promoting Interoperability” For 2018 this is a change in name only; however this is just one of the indicators that CMS is seriously looking to increase the value of interoperability in the coming years. Now is the time to get serious about electronic communication for all of your referral and transition of care correspondence, and electronic access to medical information through Health Information Exchanges.
