Will you join us?

MACRA legislation in 2015 has queued PQRS to be discontinued and MIPS to take its place in 2017. So why should a practice care about a lame-duck quality reporting program?

Dr. Dan Mingle, CEO and nationally-recognized expert on quality reporting, will give you a concise overview of PQRS and share what you need to know to avoid penalty and earn incentive for 2016 quality reporting.

The webinar will cover:

  • Common determinants of success and points of failure for PQRS.
  • Changes to value-based modifier participation and penalties.
  • PQRS transition to MIPS, the merit-based incentive payment system.

Register today for this free, educational webinar.

The window of opportunity and deadline to register for the Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO) for 2014 PQRS reporting has not yet been set. CMS has stated that the portal will open some time in March and close in September.
