We Guarantee PQRS compliance
Beginning in 2015, providers are facing even greater regulatory demands – and even greater financial penalties for non-compliance. Practices that do not meet Meaningful Use and Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) requirements could lose as much as 9% of their 2017 Medicare reimbursement.
The Physician Quality Reporting System is a CMS value-based reimbursement reporting program focused on promoting and measuring quality outcomes using patient data. Almost all providers billing Medicare are subject to PQRS.
To be successful with PQRS, practices need to report a subset of the PQRS measures. athenahealth is your partner in this. As part of our ongoing commitment to providers, we’ve introduced the PQRS Guarantee: We guarantee that providers will avoid any PQRS-related Medicare penalty – if you are penalized, we’ll credit you the amount.*
We help you thrive through change
As the leading cloud-based services provider, staying on top of change for medical groups is an integral part of what we do every day. We led the industry in Meaningful Use with 97+% attestation in 2014, and we continually update our services with the billing rules and quality measures you need—without costly software upgrades. At no additional charge.
*Guarantee eligibility is limited to certain specialties. For multi-specialty groups, 80% of providers must be in an eligible specialty. Under this Guarantee, athenahealth will cover up to 4% of your combined PQRS and Value Modifier reductions to your reimbursement, except for reductions resulting from reporting high cost under VM. This promotion may be modified or canceled any time at athenahealth’s sole and absolute discretion. Additional terms, conditions, and limitations apply.
