PQRSWizard Simplifies Reporting

The Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), developed by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicaid Services in 2007, is a voluntary pay-for-reporting program with the goal of increasing the quality of care patients receive.

In order for participating physicians to receive the financial incentives, they must send in accurate reports in a timely manner. Obtaining the required information and organizing it per the program's specifications can be a time consuming project.

Participants face added pressure because the program requirements include a penalty for those providers who do not successfully report PQRS measures. Failure to report means incurring a 1.5% negative adjustment for 2015 Medicare reimbursements and the negative adjustment increases to 2% for subsequent years.

To make the reporting process easier and increase the number of physicians who successfully participate in the program, CECity offers PQRSWizard.

PQRS Wizard is a subscription cloud-based solution for PQRS (cost varies depending on the size of your organization) that offers participating physicians a fast, convenient, and cost effective way to gather the information necessary to complete the report.

CECity's PQRSWizard is appropriate for sole practitioners and large healthcare organizations.

CECity's PQRS solution provides a step-by-step approach, often likened to an online tax preparation program, to help assure that eligible professionals meet all of the data, scoring and attestation requirements before they submit their PQRS reports to CMS for payment.

To use CECity you need to complete a registration form and provide identifying information. After that, you perform an online attestation. Once that is done, you are ready to enter the data. The data entry can be done either manually or via an upload.

PQRSWizard has built in a progress monitor; verify each step is complete before moving on to the next step. The system instantly calculates your score and lets you know if your information is complete. After that, you can simply hit "submit" and your data is sent off.

In addition, CECity's PQRS Solution includes performance benchmarks that compare your performance against peers and national standards to help you improve your quality of care.

PQRSWizard has several different qualified reporting methods, including Registry Reporting by Measure Group, Registry Reporting by Individual Measures and Reporting via Clinical Data Registry (eCQM available).
