[2] A lower performance rate corresponds to higher quality.
[3] CAHPS for MIPS is a composite measure, so numerator, denominator, and performance rate values are not applicable (N/A).

Please note, the ACO-40 Depression Remission at 12 months quality measure is not included in public reporting due to low sample size.
