Physician Quality Reporting Programs: Reporting Once in 2015
Physician Quality Reporting System

This MLN Connects™ National Provider Call provides an overview of how to report once across various 2015 Medicare Quality Reporting Programs, including the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program, Value-Based Modifier (VM), and Medicare Shared Savings Program.

This presentation helps guide providers wishing to report quality measures one time during the 2015 program year and maximize their participation in the various Medicare quality reporting programs. Satisfactory reporters will avoid the 2017 PQRS negative payment adjustment, satisfy the Clinical Quality Measure (CQM) component of the Medicare EHR Incentive Program, and satisfy requirements for the VM, avoiding the VM payment adjustment. Eligible professionals (EPs) participating in these programs are strongly encouraged to participate in this call. A Question and Answer session will follow the presentation.
