2016 PQRS Measures Relevant to Radiologists

  2. 9 PQRS measures across 3 domains or if less than 9 measures, a radiologist needs to pass the MAV. Some examples of radiology measures:

    Additionally at least one cross-cutting measure must be satisfactorily reported for those individual providers or group practices with face-to-face encounters. For those individual eligible professionals with no face-to-face encounters as found within the 2016 PQRS List of Face-to-Face Encounters, CMS would not require the reporting of a cross-cutting measure.
