2014 GPRO Measures Using the Web Interface Reporting Method
The information posted on this page is for groups who have registered with CMS to report measures through the GPRO Web Interface for program year 2014. This includes groups reporting for Physician Quality Reporting Systems (PQRS) as well as groups participating in the Shared Savings Program as Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). For groups electing this method of reporting, CMS will pre-populate the Web Interface with a sample patient population. Successful completion of the 22 Web Interface measures for the required number of patients will determine PQRS incentive eligibility and performance rates for the measures.
The following documents listed below can be found within the 2014 GPRO Web Interface Measures List, Narrative Measure Specifications, and Release Notes file:
• The 2014 Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO) Web Interface Disease Modules, Care Coordination/Patient Safety and Preventive Care Measures List document which consists of the (22) 2014 GPRO Web Interface GPRO reporting method measures.
• The 2014 Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO) Web Interface Narrative Measure Specifications which provides a description of each of the 22 measures.
• The 2014 GPRO Web Interface Narrative Specification Release Notes which provides a list of changes to existing measures made since the release of the 2013 GPRO Narrative Measure Specifications, Version 4.1.
Please note: To earn a 2014 PQRS incentive payment and avoid the 2016 PQRS payment adjustment, group practices taking part in PQRS GPRO via the Web Interface must meet the requirements for satisfactory reporting.
For educational resources to assist groups reporting through methods other than the Web Interface, see the appropriate section(s)on the left sidebar.
2014 Web Interface Sampling Document
This document explains the sampling methodology for the 22 clinical quality measures that will be reported via the Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO) Web Interface (WI) for the 2014 performance year. This guidance applies to all Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) in the Medicare Shared Savings Program with a 2012, 2013, or 2014 agreement period start date, all ACOs in the Pioneer ACO Model, and all group practices participating in Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) program using the WI. This document provides background information on the specific quality measures to be reported on using the WI, the number of beneficiaries each organization is expected to report on, and how those beneficiaries are selected.

If reporting for PQRS through another CMS program (such as the Medicare Shared Savings Program, Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative, Pioneer Accountable Care Organizations), please check the program’s requirements for information on how to report quality data to earn a PQRS incentive and/or avoid the PQRS payment adjustment. Please note, although CMS has attempted to align or adopt similar reporting requirements across programs, eligible professionals should look to the respective quality program to ensure they satisfy the PQRS, EHR Incentive Program, Value-Based Payment Modifier (VBM), etc. requirements of each of these programs.
