How to Avoid PQRS Penalties and Earn Potential Incentives with Accurate Submission of Quality Measures

CMS has recently transitioned its Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) program from a pay-for-reporting program to a program that will now apply a negative payment adjustment to providers who do not satisfactorily report data on quality measures. Memorial Hospital faced a significant problem when its PQRS reporting process was hampered by its transition to a new EHR system. They needed a solution. Learn how Memorial successfully used their enterprise data warehouse to submit the necessary data to a certified registry, avoiding a four percent Medicare reimbursement adjustment, and providing them with the potential to earn an incentive payment. They also now have several patient registries that can be used for quality improvement initiatives in clinical care, patient safety, and care coordination.
