2014 PQRS Program Update | Cardiology Magazine

Heart of Health Policy | Starting in 2015, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services will apply future negative Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) payment adjustments to providers who do not satisfactorily report data on quality measures for covered professional services. Beginning in the 2014 program year, different thresholds for measures reported across the National Quality Strategy domains have been introduced for PQRS adjustment avoidance and incentive eligibility. The ACC’s PINNACLE Registry enables participants to seamlessly take part in federal quality reporting programs, including PQRS. For the 2013 Program Year, the PINNACLE Registry submitted data on behalf of 1,236 providers across 96 practices.
