Last week, we gave you an introduction to PQRS, where we provided you with a brief overview of the reporting program. Remember that the purpose of PQRS is to promote reporting of quality information related to the type of healthcare patients are receiving. Today, we want to walk you through some of the important upcoming dates surrounding the reporting process. Being mindful of these dates can help your practice successfully report on Medicare Part B PFS and avoid future downward adjustments.
Manage Your EHR Workflow by Knowing These Important Dates in the 2015-2016 PQRS Timeline
Mark these important dates in your practice’s calendar so that you can stay on top of things in the next two years! Remember that unsuccessful reporting in 2015 and the following years, results in a 2% downward adjustment on Medicare in 2017 and the following years respectively.
