Important Meaningful Use and PQRS Reminders
2015 PQRS GPRO: 1 Week Left to Register by June 30 Deadline
We would like to draw our customers attention to the most recent update sent by CMS regarding PQRS. Clinics have the option of reporting via their EHR or registering as a GPRO, which the deadline to register for 2015 reporting is approaching. See the CMS link above for more information.
We would like to draw attention to any of our customers that did NOT attest for 2014 by March 20, 2015, and who feel they fit the hardship exceptions, that their deadline to apply, so they do NOT get any payment penalties is July 1, 2015. See the link above (a press release that states the CMS details) for more information.

As we approach the end of the Second Quarter (June 30.2015), we wanted to send a reminder: Have you been running your Automated Measures reports monthly?
• Stage 1 – Year 1 is 90 consecutive days or Year 2 is full calendar year
• Stage 2 – is a full calendar year of reporting
Please consult www.cms.gov or call CMS at 1-888-734-6433 if you are unsure what your reporting stage and timeframe should be.
You must attest by the deadline: February 28, 2016.
