The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) opened the Physician Compare quality measure preview period on October 5th. The 30-day preview period closed on Friday, November 6th. It provided an opportunity for individuals and group practices to review their 2014 quality measures before they are reported on Physician Compare later this year.
The USWR is now reporting the Diabetes measures group. This might be easiest way to make it through PQRS because you only have to report on 30 patients when you report a measure group. I’ll tell you more later. In the meantime, given the post payment review of HBOT that is rolling out, my advice is for everyone to look at the USWR hyperbaric oxygen quality measures created in conjunction with the UHMS.
