In the MIPS Dashboard in DrChrono, there are 2 options for reporting: e-Prescribing and e-Prescribing Including Controlled Prescriptions. You are able to utilized the data from one of the options for the reporting period.
As electronic prescribing of controlled substances is possible, MIPS eligible clinicians may choose to include these prescriptions in their permissible prescriptions where feasible and allowable by state and local law. If a MIPS eligible clinician chooses to include such prescriptions, he or she must do so uniformly across all patients and across all allowable schedules for the duration of the performance period. See attached document for more information.
At least one permissible prescription written by the MIPS-eligible clinician is queried for a drug formulary and transmitted electronically using certified electronic health record technology (CEHRT).
