2016 PQRS Measures Relevant to Pulmonary Medicine

Pulmonologists have 2 registry options for reporting PQRS:

  1. Measures groups - it is easier for a provider to report 2016 PQRS with measures groups because a provider only needs to report 20 patients.
  2. 9 PQRS measures across 3 domains or if less than 9 measures, a provider will need to pass the MAV. To pass the MAV, the provider needs to make sure that if a measure belongs to a PQRS cluster, all other measures inside that cluster are also reported. For example, when reporting measure #51, the provider also needs to report measure #52, #110 #130 and measure #226 . Some examples of pulmonary disease measures:

    Additionally at least one cross-cutting measure must be satisfactorily reported for those individual providers or group practices with face-to-face encounters.
