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% 82

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.
1891907770
Step 1: Double the value of the alternate digits, beginning with the rightmost digit.
2818118014714
Step 2: Add all the doubled and unaffected individual digits from step 1 plus the constant number 24.
2 + 8 + 1 + 8 + 1 + 1 + 8 + 0 + 1 + 4 + 7 + 1 + 4 + 24 = 70
Step 3: because the number obtained in step 2 ends in zero, the check digit is zero.
0

The NPI number 1891907770 is valid because the calculated check digit 0 using the Luhn validation algorithm matches the last digit of the original NPI number.
