Preview Your Quality Performance Scores Before They Become Public

You or your group practice dutifully reported quality data to the 2016 Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS). And pretty soon, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is going to report your performance scores on the Physician Compare website for all the world to see.

Wouldn’t you like to know those scores before they become public?

Does a stethoscope taste like metal?

Well, CMS is giving you or your group practice the chance to preview your scores to ensure that what is being reported about you is correct. If your data are not correct, email Physician Compare.

You can review your scores here, but you don't have much time: The preview period ends Dec. 1.

Data available for preview include: 

  • 2016 PQRS measures; 
  • 2016 Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) for PQRS measures;
  • 2016 non-PQRS Qualified Clinical Data Registries (QCDR) measures; and
  • 2015 clinician utilization data. 

For guidance on how to preview your profile and performance scores, check out this CMS five-step tip sheet. For complete details, visit the CMS website. For questions, email Physician Compare
