PQRS Submission Deadline Extended Again
CMS has extended the deadline for PQRS data submission by registry to March 31, 2017. They previously extended it from February 28, 2017 to March 13, 2017. A late February announcement states:
“Individual eligible professionals (EPs), PQRS group practices, qualified clinical data registries (QCDRs), and qualified EHR data submission vendors (DSVs) now have until Friday, March 31, 2017 to submit 2016 EHR data via QRDA. The deadline is extended to March 31, 2017 for EPs to electronically report electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs) for the Medicare EHR Incentive Program.”
The EHR MU extended deadline to March 13, 2017 remains in effect.
“The deadline for reporting via attestation and Meaningful Use objective and measure submission for providers participating in the Medicare EHR Incentive Program is Monday, March 13, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time (ET).”
If you have not submitted data to your registry, you should do so as soon as possible or contact them for their individual deadlines for submission.
