PQRS: New Quality Reporting Training Modules to Help Ensure Satisfactory 2014 Reporting
September 26, 2014
CMS has added more PQRS training modules to help simplify the process, including one for the beginner, intermediate and advanced PQRS reporting. Designed to help you find the information you need to satisfactorily participate in PQRS and other programs that offer incentive payments in 2014.
2014 PQRS Reporting Requirements – An intermediate module that explains the steps to satisfactorily reporting and earning an incentive for the 2014 PQRS program. The module also walks you through the steps on how to avoid the 2016 PQRS payment adjustment and the 2016 Value Modifier (VM) adjustment.
How to Report Once for 2014 Medicare Quality Reporting Programs – An advanced module that explains how to report quality measures one time during the 2014 program year and satisfy quality reporting requirements for several Medicare quality reporting programs. These programs include PQRS, the Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program, the VM, and Accountable Care Organizations.
Remember: 2014 is the last year eligible professionals can earn an incentive payment for satisfactorily reporting PQRS quality data to CMS. This year’s participation in PQRS determines the 2016 PQRS payment adjustment.
