QRURs provide comparative quality and cost data so that physicians can benchmark performance for quality improvement purposes.

Qualis Health, one of the nation's leading population health management organizations, has published a new resource for practicing physicians, “2013 QRUR Interpretation and Quality Improvement Guide.” The guide to Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRUR) supplements resources from the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services (CMS) to help practices interpret their Medicare reports to improve quality of care, streamline resources, and identify care coordination opportunities to provide broader support for patient needs.

The guide is available here.

“QRURs provide comparative quality and cost data so that physicians can benchmark performance for quality improvement purposes,” says Jonathan Sugarman, MD, MPH, Qualis Health President & CEO. “At Qualis Health, we’re committed to offering ways to help providers manage costs and improve quality of care.”

QRURs provide comparative information so that physicians can view examples of the clinical care their patients receive in relation to the average care and costs of other physicians’ Medicare patients.
