Advancing Care Information

This page will explain the Advancing Care Information measures for MIPS, and how to perform those measures in TRAKnet.

What is Advancing Care Information?

Advancing Care Information, or ACI, is one of four categories that factors into your overall MIPS Composite score. For more information about MIPS and its parent program, MACRA, click here. For the ACI fact sheet published by CMS, click here.

ACI effectively replaces Meaningful Use. Using many of the same measures from Meaningful Use, ACI divides them into base measures and optional measures.

As TRAKnet is a 2014 certified EHR, users must submit 4 base measures on ACI to receive base credit within the category. For partial or full participation in ACI, you must also report on optional performance measures. You may also complete one bonus measure to help improve your score.

Base Measures

  1. Security Risk Analysis
  2. E-prescribing
  3. Patient Access
  4. Health Information Exchange

Performance Measures

  1. View, Download or Transmit (VDT)
  2. Patient-Specific Education
  3. Secure Messaging
  4. Medication Reconciliation

Bonus Measure

  1. Specialized Registry

The Advancing Care Information Report

The ACI Report can be found in TRAKnet under Reports. The report can be filtered by provider and date range. The report also includes a Summary view, which gives either at-a-glance reporting information, and a Details view, which gives more in-depth information, including a list of patients that meet or do not meet the numerator for the specified provider and date range.
