Physicians who report on quality measures will be eligible for a 1.5 percent incentive payment beginning in July 2007 thanks to legislation passed by Congress this month.

Industry experts had predicted that CMS' physician voluntary reporting program (PVRP) would be tied to physician reimbursement in the near future.

"CMS' Voluntary Physician Reporting Program: Analyzing the Feedback and Preparing for 2007 Updates," a January 9, 2007 audio conference, will examine the voluntary reporting of quality measures by physician practices to the CMS.

The program is scheduled for:
Tuesday, January 9, 2007 at 1:30 p.m. Eastern time.

Your expert panel of speakers, Dr. Bruce Bagley, medical director of quality improvement with the American Academy of Family Physicians and Dr. Ronald Bangasser, a family practice physician with Beaver Medical Group, will provide an update on CMS' voluntary reporting program, the impact the program will have on physician practices in 2007 and how practices can get that extra reimbursement starting in July.

Participating in PVRP can have a daunting effect on office work flow. Each time CMS adds a measure to PVRP, Beaver Medical Group has to reconfigure its entire IT system. During a pre-conference interview, Dr. Bangasser describes the impact that sharing quality data with CMS has had on his organization, his predictions for the expansion of the reporting program, and his view of the recently legislated financial incentives CMS will award to participating physicians beginning in July 2007. Listen to pre-conference comments by Dr. Bangasser and Dr. Bagley describe his organization's willingness to support physicians as CMS expands its Physician Voluntary Reporting Program (PVRP), the role of electronic medical records in the CMS initiative, and predicts just how long this program will remain voluntary online at HealthSounds, the Healthcare Intelligence Network's podcast site.
