On December 18, 2015, CMS requested feedback on its draft “Quality Measure Development Plan: Supporting the Transition to the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Alternative Payment Models (APMs),” available here.  According to Kate Goodrich, director of the CMS’s Center for Clinical Standards & Quality, in a recent CMS blog post here, the plan “describes how CMS will work collaboratively with federal and state partners and private payers to create an aligned set of measures that reduces provider burden.”  Comments are due by March 1, 2016 and will be considered in developing the final Quality Measure Development Plan, which, according to CMS, will be posted by May 1, 2016.
