2007 PQRI Reports
According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), providers who participated in the 2007 PQRI program will have access to their feedback reports in mid-July. Prior news indicates bonus payments will be released in August.
CMS established a secure system requiring the practice’s tax identification number (TIN) in order to gain entry into the site. Registration to the IACS-PC system is required. The application can be found at https:/applications.cms.hhs.gov/home.html. Providers need to register as an individual (only the provider to access information) or as an organization (group practice and/or more than one person to access information). CMS suggests that only those expecting more than one individual to access the reports register at this time. Individuals should await further guidance.
The PQRI report will contain report rates, clinical performance, and the individual incentive earned. A summary of the practice’s reporting success and incentive payment by tax ID number will also be available.
