  • Claims Reporting Made Simple – Describes claims-based reporting and outlines steps that individual eligible professionals should take prior to participating.
  • Qualified Clinical Data Registry Reporting Made Simple – Explains Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) participation and steps individual eligible professionals should take when selecting a QCDR for the 2014 PQRS program year.

About PQRS
This is the last year eligible professionals can earn an incentive payment for satisfactorily reporting PQRS quality data to CMS, and this year’s participation in PQRS will also determine the 2016 PQRS payment adjustment.
If you satisfactorily submit PQRS quality measures to CMS using one of the approved reporting options for services provided during the 2014 reporting period, you will qualify to earn an incentive payment.
