Description:

In mid-September 2017, CMS will make 2016 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.

2016 Annual QRURs show how groups and solo practitioners performed in 2016 on the quality and cost measures used to calculate the 2018 Value-Based Payment Modifier (Value Modifier) and how the Value Modifier will be applied to payments for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, and certified registered nurse anesthetists. Learn more on the 2016 QRUR and 2018 Value Modifier  webpage. This event will be more meaningful if you have your report in front of you to follow along.  Visit How to Obtain a QRUR to access your report prior to the event.

  • Overview of the 2018 Value Modifier and 2016 Annual QRUR
  • Information in the 2016 Annual QRUR and accompanying tables
