What is the Best PQRS Reporting Method?Over half of eligible providers didn’t file PQRS data in 2013, most saying it was too difficult to do and not worth their time. However, Medicare has significantly increased penalties in 2015, meaning that most eligible providers will lose an estimated $18,000 in reimbursements on average in 2017. Few practices can afford not to file this year. Electronic filing of PQRS data is a game changer for any practice using an EHR. Here’s how this new filing technology helps practices save time and avoid steep penalties.
- No need to select measures
- No claims-level work or chart abstraction
- No IT resources needed
- No forms to fill out
- Works across multiple EHRs
