The more advanced "Medical Lab Tests w/LDS Ranks" product includes Laboratory Decision System (LDS) rankings.

LDS uses a proprietary ranking system that enables healthcare providers to correctly select and order the most relevant tests based on diseases, symptoms, and ICD-10 codes.

Our LDS system scores over 10,000 test-disease/condition pairs, assigns a rank from 1 to 10 and displays the ranks as a simple color coded indicator of clinical relevance, medical necessity and testing indication.

  MIPS Quality Measures (formerly PQRS)  

The Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) is part of the Quality Payment Program (QPP) that was created by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA).  It replaced the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) beginning in the performance year 2017.  Quality, which is one category of MIPS, can be reported if an eligible CPT or ICD-10 code is reported for an encounter.
