PQRS and QRUR Reports are Now Available

On Sept. 26, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released the 2015 Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) Feedback Reports and the 2015 Annual Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRURs).

The PQRS reports show a physician’s program year 2015 PQRS reporting results, including payment adjustment assessment for calendar year 2017. The QRUR reports show how physician groups and physician solo practitioners performed in 2015 on the quality and cost measures used to calculate the 2017 Value Modifier as well as their 2017 Value Modifier payment adjustment. These reports also contain information about care delivered to Medicare beneficiaries that can be used to better understand and improve quality and cost performance under the Value Modifier, including information about hospitalizations and other providers that can be used to improve quality and better coordinate care, according to CMS.

You must access the reports through an Enterprise Identity Management (EIDM) account with the appropriate role. If you already have an account, follow the instructions provided here to sign up for the appropriate role in EIDM.
