Improvement Activity Selection in the MIPS Portal

The MIPS Portal helps you navigate and select activities to meet requirements for the MIPS Improvement Activities performance category.

This takes you to the Improvement Activities Summary page which shows a list of all TINs associated with your physicians, with their NPIs listed below.

Information about reporting requirements and instructions are available at the top of the page. 

You can switch to a different TIN or work with multiple physicians within a single TIN using the pick lists at the top of the page Select Activities page. MIPS Porta - IA Select Activities - Pick Lists

Note: TINs registered for the Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO) cannot add activities for individual physicians because the activities apply to the entire group. Physicians submitting MIPS data individually, on the other hand, can attest to activities at the individual level or in batches of multiple physicians.

There are more than 90 activities available from which to choose. Use the filters on the left side of the page to filter by subcategories – e.g. Behavioral and Mental Health and Expanded Practice, or by Activity Weighting – e.g. High Priority. Criteria from both filters are applied simultaneously.MIPS Portal - IA Selected Activities Filters
