PQRS Reporting via EHR and QCDR Extended - March 20

Mar 20, 2015 - Mar 20, 2015 05:00 PM


The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has extended the submission deadlines for two Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) reporting methods from February 28 to March 20 at 8 p.m., EST. (5:00 PM PST)

The two affected reporting methods are:

  • Direct electronic health record (EHR) submission or submission via a vendor using certified EHR technology
  • Qualified clinical data registry (using the QRDA III format) reporting for PQRS and the clinical quality measure component of meaningful use for the EHR Incentive Program

Submission timeframes for other PQRS reporting methods remain the same.

CMS also recently extended the meaningful use attestation deadline for the 2014 Medicare EHR Incentive Program reporting period, also to March 20.
