How to get started with PQRS
Contact individual qualified registries (PDF) and qualified Electronic Health Record Vendors (PDF) for information on their specific reporting processes. Medicare data reveals that physicians who reported on PQRS measures through a qualified registry are much more likely to earn incentive payments than their peers who choose the claims-based reporting option.
To help ensure that you have a positive PQRS experience, please contact IDSA staff with any reporting questions.
A PQRS help line also is available to answer questions regarding participation procedures, feedback reports, and bonus payments. Please call 866-288-8912 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Central Time or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to access the help line.
You only have to choose one
reporting option to qualify for the 1.0 percent incentive payment under
the PQRS. Do not begin reporting through the PQRS until you fully
understand the various reporting options and requirements.
