CMS Physician Quality Reporting Initiative Vol. II:
PQRI's Measures, Incentives and Coding in 2007

This new special report, "CMS Physician Quality Reporting Initiative Vol. II: PQRI's Measures, Incentives and Coding in 2007," provides an insider's look at the 2007 changes to the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI). This program was formerly known as the Physician Voluntary Reporting Program (PVRP). The CMS first announced the PQRI in October 2005. The program gained momentum in late 2006 when Congress legislated a 1.5 percent financial incentive for physicians reporting on their Medicare populations beginning in July 2007.

In "CMS Physician Quality Reporting Initiative Vol. II: PQRI's Measures, Incentives and Coding in 2007," two physicians actively involved in the PQRI effort share their unique perspectives on performance measurement basics, review one medical group’s experience with PQRI, and venture their educated guesses regarding the future of this physician quality reporting program as it matures.

In this 38-page report, you'll get details on: who’s who in physician quality measurement; feedback from a California Medical Group on voluntary reporting measures; deconstructing coding and measurement reporting requirements; what the "80 percent" reporting requirement really means; preparing for payouts for Medicare measures beginning in July 2007; what the CMS hospital reporting initiative can teach us about the direction of physician reporting; and much, much more, including 10 pages of valuable Q&A on PVRP challenges and pointers to tools, worksheets and resources to assist physicians in the reporting of patient measures.
