Leveraging Physician Quality Reporting System Data

Recently, I have had the opportunity to work with a number of eligible professionals (EPs) reporting for Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) in CY2016. There were many interesting questions from each of the engaged providers. One question included “Why should the EP participate in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) quality initiatives?”

To learn more about participating in quality initiatives, review the Quality Reporting Road Map and companion resources available on the PQRS “How to Get Started” webpage. The information presented in this column is found within the “2016 Beginner Reporting Toolkit” link, specifically on the flowchart, on the same webpage. This beginner-level toolkit contains 2 documents to help individual EPs and PQRS group practices navigate their way through the various PQRS decision points and the impact of quality reporting. You’ll need to download and open a zipped file to access the full document.
