How to Interpret Your 2012 Supplemental Quality and Resource Use Report
Topic
Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRURs) – Physician Feedback Program

Description:

During this MLN Connects™ National Provider Call, speakers provide an overview of the Program Year (PY) 2012 Supplemental Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRURs). These confidential reports are now available for group practices with 100 or more eligible professionals that received group 2012 QRURs. The PY 2012 Supplemental QRURs provide medical group practices with summary level and detailed drill down information on payment-standardized, risk-adjusted clinical episodes of care that are attributed to the medical group, including information about Medicare providers who care for the patient during the episode both inside and outside the medical group. More information on the 2012 Supplemental QRURs is available on the Episode Grouping for Medicare and Supplemental QRURs web page.

The 2012 Supplemental QRURs are for informational purposes only and complement the quality and per capita cost information provided in the 2012 QRURs. The information contained in the 2012 Supplemental QRURs does not affect Medicare payment and is not part of the value-based payment modifier under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule.

CMS encourages groups to access their PY 2012 Supplemental QRURs prior to this MLN Connects Call, via the CMS Enterprise portal using an Individuals Authorized Access to the CMS Computer Services (IACS) User ID and password. A quick reference guide for obtaining an IACS account or modifying an existing account is available on the Self Nomination/Registration web page.
