What is the MIPS Dashboard watch list and how do I use it?

What is the watch list?

The MIPS Dashboard watch list is an exciting new tool that can help you track the PI measures, quality measures and improvement activities you may want to report. You can use the watch list to track as many items as you would like, with no limit on the number of items that can be added. By adding items to your watch list, you can easily create a single reference point in the Dashboard to view your progress at a glance.  

How do I add to my watch list?

Promoting Interoperability (PI) Transition Measures
The four PI base score measures are required for all levels of MIPS participation and will therefore be automatically added to your PI watch list once you have selected a performance period in your MIPS Preferences. These required measures are:

To select additional PI performance score measures to track, navigate to your PI category tab and click the Watch button next to any performance score measure you wish to track. Use the toggle button to “Add to watch list” and the measure will appear in the PI watch list on your MIPS Dashboard home page.

Improvement Activities

  • Navigate to the Improvement Activities performance category tab and click the Watch button next to any improvement activity you wish to track. Once you have set the toggle button to “Add to watch list,” the activity will appear in the Improvement Activities watch list on your MIPS Dashboard home page. Please note that the Complete checkbox does not have to be checked in order to watch the activity and should only be checked when you have met the activity requirements.

Quality Measures

  • To select the Quality performance category measures that you wish to track during your performance period, navigate to the eCQM Dashboard, located in the Reports section of the Practice Fusion EHR. Use the Watch button next to each measure you wish to track to add the measure to your Quality watch list. Once selected, the measure will appear both in the Quality Performance category tab and in the Quality watch list on your MIPS Dashboard home page.

Once you have finished adding the items you wish to track, you will be able to check your progress on each item directly from the MIPS Dashboard home page.
