2012 Quality and Resource Use Reports Overview and December Addendum

Description:
This MLN Connects™ National Provider Call provides an overview of the 2012 Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRURs), including a review of the December addendum and how to interpret and use the data in the report.

On September 16, 2013, CMS released the 2012 QRURs to group practices with 25 or more eligible professionals (EPs). The QRUR previews each group’s performance on quality and cost measures that could be used to calculate the group’s Value-Based Payment Modifier in 2015. On December 23, 2013, CMS released an addendum to the 2012 QRURs to include individual eligible professional (EP) PQRS performance data. The addendum will be available for all group practices with 25 or more EPs for which at least one EP reported PQRS measures as an individual in 2012 and was found to be incentive eligible.
