PQRS 2015 Reporting: How to Go Beyond Basics to Improve Outcomes

By March 3, 2015 No Comments

Mountain climbing 2Chances are you don’t have time to read through all 1,200 pages of Medicare’s Final Reporting Rule. But if you don’t understand how CMS is moving the Medicare program, and the health care system at large, toward rewarding providers for quality rather than quantity of care, your organization is in for a rude awakening.

In 2015, PQRS is now mandatory; you must meet full reporting requirements to avoid a penalty. No more safety nets.

Successful reporting means you need to understand the interplay between PQRS and the Value-Based Payment Modifier (VBPM), which rewards only those practices that outperform their competition on quality and cost, and penalizes those that fall below average.
