Instructional Video Demonstrations – MIPS 2018 Participation through the SSR

The SSR program has created comprehensive video demonstrations of MIPS 2018 participation through the SSR system. The videos cover the essential steps needed to participate in MIPS 2018 through the SSR. The videos are organized by MIPS Quality Measures reporting option (i.e. General Surgery Specialty Measures Set; ACS Surgical Phases of Care Measures; ACS Trauma Quality Measures). Do you need to know more about MIPS 2018? Watch our MIPS 2018 Overview video, which includes information about changes in MIPS from 2017 to 2018, as well as what the SSR can do for your MIPS 2018 participation.
