CMS Physician Voluntary Reporting Program:
Weighing the Benefits of Participation

The healthcare industry's call for quality service is coming from all sides. Health plans, employers, consumers and even the federal government are leaning on healthcare providers to document the quality of the care they provide. The Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services (CMS) is now asking for even more reporting. Physicians can now voluntarily self-report adherence to certain evidence-based quality measures to CMS. Given the benefit of confidential feedback, physicians are encouraged to open their practices to performance improvement and apply lessons learned on their own terms.
Our new special report, "CMS Physician Voluntary Reporting Program: Weighing the Benefits of Participation," explores the role of CMS' Physician Voluntary Reporting Program (PVRP) in the context of healthcare's pay-for-performance (PFP) environment.
