ACP supports MIPS measure ID# 119 (NQF ID# 0062): “Diabetes: Medical Attention for Nephropathy” because the opportunity for improvement is well documented, developers cite 2018 clinical recommendations of the American Diabetes Association on “Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes” to form the basis of the measure, the numerator and denominator are well defined, the denominator includes well specified and clinically appropriate exceptions to eligibility for the measure, and measurement is repeatable and precise.

As part of an ongoing effort to improve user experience, we have made some updates to the Performance Measures section of ACP. Tell us what you think!
