Results from 2008 Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI) Released

Today, CMS released the results of the 2008 PQRI program.  In 2008, more than 153,600 providers participated in the PQRI program and approximately 85,000 providers received a bonus incentive payment.  You will recall that in 2007, just over 109,000 providers participated in the PQRI, with 56,722 earning a bonus incentive.  As a result of the 2007 PQRI re-run, approximately 3,900 additional providers received a 2007 bonus incentive. CMS also notes a 96% success rate for those providers who opted to use a registry for purposes of reporting quality data codes to CMS in the 2008 PQRI.

Providers may access their feedback reports by visiting the PQRI portal at http://www.qualitynet.org/pqri (at the Tax  Identification Number level) or by contacting their Medicare Carrier/Administrative Contractor directly.  Trained Help Desk staff will assist providers with accessing their feedback reports through the QualityNet Portal at 1-866-288-8912.  Support is available Monday through Friday from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM Central Time.
