MIPS Measure Score Weight Score
Quality 40% 85.5
The Quality category assesses providers performance on clinical practices and patient outcomes under the traditional MIPS program. The quality measures help identify the quality of healthcare processes, outcomes, and patient experiences. The Quality measure category compromises 40% providers final MPIS scores.

There are six collection types for MIPS quality measures: Electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs), MIPS Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs), Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) Measures, Medicare Part B claims measures, CMS Web Interface measures and The Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) for MIPS Survey.
Promoting Interoperability (PI) 25% N/A
The Interoperability category measures the providers ability to use technology to exchange and make use of healthcare information in a way that is less burdensome and improves outcomes. The Interoperability measure category compromises 25% providers final MPIS scores.

The MIPS Interoperability measure focuses on the use of certified electronic health record technology (CEHRT) to improve patient access health information, the exchange of information between clinicians and pharmacies and the systematic collection, analysis, and interpretation of healthcare data.
Improvement Activities 15% 40
The Improvement Activities performance category evaluates the providers participation in clinical activities that support the improvement of clinical practice, care delivery, and outcomes.

Cost 20% 74.8

NPI Validation Check Digit Calculation


The following table explains the step by step NPI number validation process using the ISO standard Luhn algorithm.

Start with the original NPI number, the last digit is the check digit and is not used in the calculation.
1124093950
Step 1: Double the value of the alternate digits, beginning with the rightmost digit.
2144096910
Step 2: Add all the doubled and unaffected individual digits from step 1 plus the constant number 24.
2 + 1 + 4 + 4 + 0 + 9 + 6 + 9 + 1 + 0 + 24 = 60
Step 3: because the number obtained in step 2 ends in zero, the check digit is zero.
0

The NPI number 1124093950 is valid because the calculated check digit 0 using the Luhn validation algorithm matches the last digit of the original NPI number.
