Physician Quality Reporting Initiative in 2009: How To Avoid Submission Errors and Improve Reimbursement


According to Dr. Bruce Bagley, the cornerstone of PQRI is quality improvement, and any bonus payments physicians receive for reporting efforts are just that — by-products of the process. Dr. Bagley, medical director of quality improvement for the American Academy of Family Physicians, also shares his views on the value of patient registries and other healthcare IT for PQRI, and advises physicians who may be frustrated by their PQRI experiences.

Dr. Bagley, along with Betsy Nicoletti, consultant, Medical Practice Consulting, LLC, described how PQRI can provide physician practices with a great start on registries and measurement and reporting and provided practical hands-on PQRI coding and auditing strategies during a March 18, 2009 webinar, Physician Quality Reporting Initiative in 2009: How To Avoid Submission Errors and Improve Reimbursement.
