Quality improvement programs, including pay-for-performance programs and pay-for-reporting programs like PQRS, are especially difficult for navigate in the early months of each new calendar year, because typically January and February are the months when reporting is done for the previous measurement year. But of course the programs don’t go on hiatus just because it is time to report; it is important for participating physicians and physician organizations to be aware of the requirements, dates, and deadlines applicable for both the most recent measurement year and the current one.
Keeping track of key dates and deadlines may seem like a simple task, but as with many government programs, identifying all the dates in one place can seem like searching for a needle in a haystack. For PQRS, submission deadlines vary based on whether quality measure data is reported through a registry, EHR, Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR), the GPRO Web Interface, or using the claims reporting mechanism.
To make PQRS participation a little easier this year, Able Health has compiled all of the key dates and deadlines related to the PQRS and Value-Based Payment Modifier (VPBM) program into one easy-to-read and printable calendar.
