Use AGA's DHRP™ to Meet 2016 Reporting Requirements

Dec. 14, 2016

Data needs to be submitted by mid-February to meet 2016 Physician Quality Reporting System requirements.

AGA offers two 2016 Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) Measures Group reporting options: the AGA Digestive Health Recognition ProgramTM IBD and HCV modules. These modules require reporting on a minimum of 20 patients (including at least 11 Medicare patients). Successfully entering and reporting data to CMS by mid-February 2017 fully meets 2016 PQRS reporting requirements, which will affect your 2018 reimbursements.  

For more information, watch a recording of Ziad Gellad's, MD, MPH, webinar on PQRS reporting. Make sure to bring your questions to the AGA Community with our Ask the Expert session as well, which is open through Wednesday, Dec. 21. 

Register now for HCV and IBD Measures Groups reporting. Additionally, the AGA 2016 QCDR offers an option for reporting on 50 percent of all patients. Learn more and register. Assistance with the registration process is available through AGA’s technology vendor at support@medconcert.com or 888-669-7444, option 4.
