In mid-September 2016, CMS will make 2015 Annual Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRURs) available to all group practices and solo practitioners nationwide. This event provides an overview of the report and explains how to interpret and use the information.
2015 Annual QRURs show how groups and solo practitioners performed in 2015 on the quality and cost measures used to calculate the 2017 Value-Based Payment Modifier (Value Modifier) and how the Value Modifier will be applied to physician payments. Learn more on the 2015 QRUR and 2017 Value Modifier webpage. Visit How to Obtain a QRUR to 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.
