Product Description

CMS is handing out bonuses! Are you in the loop?

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI) has returned for 2008. If you're not in the know yet, you should be! Not only will participating help CMS better research its payment population, but you get free cash for participating! -- That is, if you follow CMS' instructions to the tee.

Make sure you are capturing all the measures that reflect your patient populations -- and reporting them correctly to CMS by tuning in to this audioconference. Healthcare industry expert Caral Edelberg, CPC, CCS-P, CHC, will give you an overview of the PQRI program, including regulatory background, implementation and reporting steps and specific examples of how to use the codes.

Here’s a sampling of what you’ll learn:

  • Common reasons why physician groups don’t participate -- and why they should!
  • Think you're golden if you understood PQRI 2007? Make sure you know the changes for 2008.
