Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS)
PQRS is a reporting program that requires Eligible Professionals (EPs) to track and report Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs) electronically. To participate in the CMS PQRS program, you are required to report data on quality measures for covered Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) services furnished to Medicare Part B Fee-for-Service (FFS) beneficiaries (including Railroad Retirement Board and Medicare Secondary Payer).
