    NBHA and NOF Develop PQRS Tool to Help Clinicians Meet New CMS Quality Reporting Requirements for Bone Health

    Date: November 06, 2014

    Beginning in 2015, CMS (the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) will reduce payments to physicians who opt out of quality reporting programs. An increasing percentage of payments for U.S. Medicare and Medicaid will depend upon successful reporting of quality measures for every practicing clinician. To help clinicians meet these requirements, the National Bone Health Alliance (NBHA) and National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) have developed a new tool for those in the bone health field to successfully participate in the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS). The NBHA and NOF Quality Improvement Registry (QIR) has been designated as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) by the CMS for PQRS reporting. QIR is the only QCDR focused exclusively on osteoporosis and post-fracture care. As an ASBMR member, you are eligible for a discount to use the QIR and can receive personalized support to answer your questions and walk you through the reporting process.
