Physicians participating in QCIPN agree to participate actively and meaningfully in all initiatives and protocols developed by the Network, and to adhere to the participation criteria outlined in the QCIPN policies and participation agreement. Specifically, QCIPN physicians will agree to:

  • Align with the vision and value proposition of QCIPN

Participation criteria are being developed by the Board and committees. Each physician would be expected to participate in the QCIPN initiatives to enhance the quality and efficiency of care to all patients. If expectations are not met, the provider will be provided with feedback and asked to remedy the situation.

The QCIPN will provide you with a strong network of physicians and health system resources to enhance and help you navigate care delivery and culture changes necessary to care for your patients. We hope you will find that participation in the QCIPN will have positive influences on your practice, allow for opportunities to contribute to the development of clinical best practices, receive data on performance measures, and improve overall care delivery.

Join QHS MSSP ACO

Any provider or practice participating in Medicare fee-for-service who is not in another MSSP and is interested in improving quality and coordination of care. In some cases, specialists can be in more than one MSSP.

1. Improved patient care for Medicare fee-for-service patients through effective and efficient provider collaboration and MSSP ACO support services.

    2. No individual MIPS reporting and certain advantages in MIPS scoring

    • Group reporting only: The MSSP ACO submits quality measures for the group and members don’t need to report individually.
    • CMS gives MSSP ACO members certain advantages that could provide opportunities to score higher on MIPS than if reporting individually.

    3. Potentially better scores on the CMS Physician Compare website

    • MSSP ACO members have automatic advantages that include a better chance of improved Physician Compare scores than those who choose not to submit MIPS reporting or do poorly.
    • Consumers will be able to see providers’ MIPS scores and ranges in each category and compared to peers nationally.

    4. Better management of your Medicare fee-for-service patient panel
    Services that can improve patient care, such as analyzing and acting on patient data and clinical care coordination for high-risk patients, can be provided at no cost for Medicare FFS beneficiaries.

      5. Potential for shared savings
      If there are cost savings derived from the work, the savings are allowed to be shared with ACO members as determined by the MSSP ACO Board

      How does this affect CPC+ participants?
      CPC+ participants need to weigh the pros and cons of an MSSP ACO based on their own practices. To discuss your particular situation, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call (808) 691-7220. We’ll have special sessions for CPC+ participants interested in the MSSP ACO.

        How is the program different for specialists?
        Specialists participation depends on several factors related to the specific practice, their goals, and the structure of the MSSP ACO. To discuss your particular situation, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call (808) 691-7220. We’ll have sessions just for specialists interested in the MSSP ACO.

          Does joining cost anything?

          • There are no financial costs to join. Providers do need to agree to provide care and services that improve the quality of care for Medicare FFS beneficiaries
          • To help with quality metrics and reporting, there will be a requirement to use an electronic medical record system, preferably one that has or will be able to be integrated with the Queen’s Enterprise Data warehouse.
          • If there are members found to be challenged by the quality requirements, there will be a mechanism in place for developing a performance improvement plan for assistance
