Who Do Physicians Believe Will Benefit from MIPS?
This is one question posed and evaluated by VSSL Director Dr. Joshua Liao and colleague in a recent paper published in the Journal of Hospital Management and Health Policy.
The authors surveyed physicians during the first year of MIPS, asking physician respondents how the program would ultimately impact stakeholder groups.

In fact, more physicians believed the MIPS would ultimately harm these groups
