The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will publicly report performance scores on the Physician Compare website by the end of the year. The scores are based on quality data submitted for the 2015 Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) program year. CMS is currently offering physicians and group practices an opportunity to preview their scores as they will appear on Physician Compare. Look at your scores now; the preview period ends Nov. 11.
For step-by-step guidance on how to preview your performance scores, refer to the Guide to Physician Compare Preview Period. To learn more about which measures are targeted for public reporting, refer to the following CMS guides:
If your performance scores are incorrect or if you have questions about your quality data, contact Physician Compare by email. For complete details about the Physician Compare Initiative, visit the CMS website. For information on quality reporting for the 2016 PQRS program year, visit the TMA PQRS and VM Resource Center.
