The MIPS Portal helps you navigate and select measures for the MIPS Advancing Care Information performance category. To get started, log in to NRDR, select MIPS Participation Portal, select Data Collection and Reports, and then select Advancing Care Information.

The ACI Summary page shows a list of all TINs associated with your facility.

For TINs using the Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO), click the grey Select Advancing Care Measures button in the TIN header to select measures for the entire group.MIPS Portal - ACI Summary Page

For non-GPRO TINs, click the TIN header to expand the row and display the physicians associated with the TIN, and then click the blue Advancing Care Measures button on the right side of the screen to select measures for a specific physician.

Information about reporting requirements and instructions are available at the top of the page. Click the symbol to the right of the instructions to expand or collapse the text.MIPS Portal - ACI Select Measures Page

For non-GPRO TINs, you can select measures for multiple physicians by using the Physician pick list.MIPS Portal - ACI Physician Pick List

Use the TIN pick list to switch to another TIN.


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