Reporting deadlines for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), Value-Based Payment Modifier, and meaningful use programs are fast approaching. This data submission timeframe is happening at the same time CMS is rolling out the new Quality Payment Program, Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), and advanced alternative payment models required by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA). Are you confused about the alphabet soup of quality reporting? If so, get help from the TMF Quality Innovation Network and TMA Practice Consulting.
The TMF Quality Innovation Network hosts free educational events for the benefit of physicians, hospitals, and other health care professionals. Register for the TMF Quality Innovation Network's Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) and Meaningful Use Open Forum to ask questions and learn details for the final reporting and attesting of 2016 PQRS and 2016 meaningful use. This open forum will take place Thursday, Feb. 16, from noon to 1 pm CT. Recorded events are also available, including An Overview of the Quality Payment Program for 2017, presented by CMS Chief Medical Officer David Nilasena, MD. Learn more about upcoming events by visiting www.TMFQIN.org and clicking on Events. A recording of the forum will be available two weeks after the events. You can access it on TMF's Recorded Events page.
TMA Practice Consulting offers quality improvement services to help prepare physician practices for the upcoming transition under MACRA.
