The current literature does not examine whether administering two or more MAs included in MIPS 477 improves the quality measures previously identified. Therefore, our study aims to address this question on whether or not there are any benefits to the quality measures. The opioid epidemic is a major public health concern in the United States. To address this, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services recommends the use of two or more nonopioid multimodal analgesics (MAs) during the perioperative period from 6 hours prior to anesthesia start time until discharge from the postanesthesia care unit (PACU). This recommendation is accounted for by the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) 477, a financial incentive program that adjusts reimbursement based on the anesthesia provider’s quality performances.3 This program was implemented by the anesthesia providers at a Level 2 trauma hospital in the Mid-Atlantic region for surgical patients in the perioperative setting. However, there was no data analysis on the following quality measures: perioperative opioid consumption, postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV), and pain scores. Furthermore, it was unknown if the protocol implementation resulted in beneficial clinical outcomes.  

Learning Outcomes:
  • Summarize the effects of two or more multimodal analgesia on patients’ perioperative opioid consumption. 

  • Summarize the effects of two or more multimodal analgesia on patients’ postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV). 

  • Summarize the effects of two or more multimodal analgesia on patients’ pain scores.
