What do I Need to do for MIPS?


To maximize your MIPS score, you will need to pursue Improvement Activities in addition to Quality Measures and Promoting Interoperability. Smaller practices (fewer than 15 providers) need to perform 1 high or 2 medium weight Improvement Activities. Larger practices need to perform 2 high or 4 medium weight Improvement Activities.


The Referral Portal is a powerful ally to tackle Improvement Activities in your practice and increase your MIPS score. Click on an activity name to find out how Sophrona’s Referral Portal can help.

Care coordination agreements that promote improvements in patient tracking across settings

Complimenting your EHR – Maximizing your Opportunities


If your practice has an EHR in place, you may choose to continue sending transition of care summaries and letters to other doctors via fax or direct through your EHR. Keep in mind, many ODs don’t have their own EHR. Using Referral Portal allows external ODs to exchange information in a manner that ensures you receive MIPS credit for qualified activities.


  • Send a Transition of Care Summary (Promoting Interoperability)
  • Close the Referral Loop (Quality Measure)
  • Use the Referral Portal in parallel to exchange more customized secure messages including images, notes, lab results, answering clarifying questions, etc.
