PQRS Registry 2015
We've always been aggressive in helping our clients to collect, analyze and report data pertaining to the quality of care and are pleased to provide them the option of Registry based PQRS reporting," said Arnaz Bharucha, STO, iPatientCare, Inc.

iPatientCare, Inc., a pioneer in mHealth and cloud based ambulatory EHR, Integrated Practice Management and Patient Portal Solutions, announced today that it has been selected as a Qualified Physician Quality Reporting System(PQRS) Registry by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for 2015. As a qualified PQRS Registry, iPatientCare will help eligible providers to submit data based on PQRS quality measures directly to CMS.

By reporting on PQRS quality measures, individual EPs and group practices can quantify how often they are meeting a particular quality metric. Beginning in 2015, the program will apply a negative payment adjustment to individual EPs and PQRS group practices who did not satisfactorily report data on quality measures for Medicare Part B Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) covered professional services in 2013. Those who report satisfactorily for the 2015 program year will avoid the 2017 PQRS negative payment adjustment.

Submission of quality data is tied to future pay-for-performance outcomes through the Value-Based Payment Modifier program which allocates a payment differential to Eligible Professionals under the Medicare Part B Physician Fee Schedule based upon the quality of care furnished. iPatientCare’s PQRS Registry is an easy- to- use solution for seamlessly reporting quality data through the iPatientCare EHR.

“We are excited that iPatientCare has been selected by CMS as a qualified Registry for 2015. We've always been aggressive in helping our clients to collect, analyze and report data pertaining to the quality of care and are pleased to provide them the option of Registry based PQRS reporting with iPatientCare EHR," said Arnaz Bharucha, Senior Technology Officer, iPatientCare.

Healthcare providers will have the opportunity to use the data gathered as part of PQRS .The measures selected are based on clinical guidelines and provide evidence-based guidelines for improvements in care.”
