Getting started in PQRS
The CMS Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) program promotes the reporting of quality information using incentive payments, and payment adjustments beginning in 2015, to encourage eligible health care professionals (EPs) to report on specific quality measures. The CMS website has a variety of resources available to physicians including a step-by-step guide to getting started in the program. For more information, visit the PQRS website or contact Ruth Cornwall, KMS Director of Health Care Finance. Ruth can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 800.332.0156.
