MIPS: Not Too Late to Propose 2018 ACI Measures

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is encouraging providers to identify and submit measures for the 2018 Advancing Care Information Performance Category.

    This snippet is confusing. At first glance, it appears that providers only have until June 30th to submit measures for ACI for MIPS meaning our data is due. It took further reading to understand that this is referring to something else. Very poorly written in my opinion.
