Modern Healthcare

The CMS is seeking information on how clinical quality measure data that physicians are already reporting to medical boards, specialty societies and other nonfederal programs can be used to meet requirements of its Physician Quality Reporting System and its electronic health record incentive program. “We are seeking input on how alignment of certain requirements present in both federal and nonfederal CQM reporting programs could reduce the burden for eligible professionals and accelerate quality improvement,” a CMS request for information stated.
