UIC Achieves Perfect Score on Medicare MIPS Program

United Imaging Consultants, Kansas City’s leading radiology group practice, is proud to announce receipt of a perfect 100/100 score from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for 2017 performance in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) program.  The MIPS program measures quality and practice improvement activities by physicians and group practices.

In the quality arena, the MIPS program measures factors such as appropriate follow up imaging recommendations for incidental findings of lung nodules, thyroid nodules, and abdominal lesions, as well using protocols to prevent of central venous catheter-related bloodstream infections.  CMS also recognized the fact that UIC radiologists are on duty and available to patients and clinicians 24/7/365 as an important practice improvement activity.
