CMS’ Physician Compare Preview is Extended through Friday, Dec. 1

On October 18, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) opened the 30-Day Preview Period for the 2016 performance targeted to be publicly reported on Physician Compare starting in December 2017. The preview was scheduled to end on November 17 at 8 pm ET, but a technical issue prevented the data from properly displaying in the preview portal, the Provider Quality Information Portal (PQIP)—so all data were not viewable for the first week of preview.

The display issue has now been resolved, and the preview has been extended through Friday, Dec. 1, 2017, at 8 pm ET, to allow physicians and clinicians to have more time to preview their performance data.

For more information about preview and the measures available for preview, visit the Physician Compare Initiative webpage.
