Prepare for the release of Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) reports and Qualtiy and Resource Use Reports (QRUR), which provide important information on payment adjustments for 2017 and improvement opportunities. They will be released by CMS any day now.
PQRS feedback reports depict your program year 2015 PQRS reporting results, including payment adjustment assessment for 2017.
QRURs are how a practice obtains comparative information about the quality and cost of the care provided to Medicare patients. QRURs should be used to:
- Verify the accuracy of EPs billing under your group’s Tax Identification Number (TIN).
- Examine the number of patients attributed to your group and the basis for the attribution.
- Evaluate how your group’s performance compares to other groups and which attributed beneficiaries are driving your group’s cost and quality measures.
- Show how providers will fare under the 2017 Value-Based Modifier (VM)
