The PQRIwizard is now live! SNMMI has partnered with CE City to offer the PQRIwizard, a fast, convenient, and cost-effective online tool to help collect and report quality measure data for the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) incentive payment program. Similar to online tax preparation software, the PQRIwizardguides users through a few easy steps to help rapidly collect, validate, report, and submit the results to CMS for payment. The cost of a one year subscription is $299. Please visit https://snmmi.pqriwizard.comto get started today.
It is not too late to start participating in the 2012 PQRS and potentially qualify to receive an incentive payment equal to 0.5 percent of an eligible professional’s total Medicare Part B allowed charges for services furnished during the reporting period. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) offered a new sixth-month reporting option that began on July 1, 2012. Additionally, there are still ways to participate in the 12-month reporting period. For more information on the PQRS program, please visit the CMS website.
