Topic
Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRURs) – Physician Feedback Program

When: Thursday, September 17, 2015

Time:    2:30 PM - 4:00 PM Eastern Time

Description: 
In late August 2015, CMS will make the 2014 Annual Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRURs) available to group practices and solo practitioners nationwide, including groups and solo practitioners who participated in the Medicare Shared Savings Program, the Pioneer Accountable Care Organization (ACO) model, or the Comprehensive Primary Care (CPC) initiative in 2014. This MLN Connects® Event provides an overview of the 2014 Annual QRUR and explains how to interpret and use the information in the report.

The 2014 Annual QRURs contain quality and cost performance data for CY 2014, which is the performance period for the Value-Based Payment Modifier that will be applied to physician payments for items and services furnished under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule for groups of 10 or more eligible professionals in 2016. Learn more about the reports on the 2014 QRUR website. The event will be more meaningful if you have your QRUR in front of you to follow along. Visit How to Obtain a QRUR and access your report prior to the event.

CMS will use webcast technology for this event with audio streamed through your computer. Please note: if you are unable to stream audio through your computer, phone lines are available.
