Medicare Adjustments in upcoming years: Issues that prevent EP’s from adequately capturing and reporting PQRS’s

Have you started to do PQRS reporting for your practice/group, for 2016? Regardless if this is your first year or not the following might be some issues that your practice might face when reporting.

-Issue 1: EHR reporting- not all EHR vendors are CMS certified

-Issue2: Not all EHR vendors have customizable PQRS categories.

-Issue3: If your EHR does not have the needed PQRS category, especially for a specialist, ex . Asthma, Allergy and Immunology, then you will have to go through a third party vendor, CMS Qualified Registry, and pay anywhere $250 to $500, or more.
