Using the AGA Digestive Health Recognition Program, members pay just $300 per clinician to submit data for patients with HCV or IBD.

Providers are facing a two percent reimbursement penalty in 2017 for non-compliance in the CMS Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS). All providers billing to Medicare are subject to PQRS requirements. To make sure they comply with PQRS and avoid the penalty in 2017, practices need to report on various PQRS measures as related to their 2015 patient data. 

Using the AGA Digestive Health Recognition Program™ (DHRP), AGA members pay just $300 per clinician to submit data for patients with HCV or IBD. Clinicians can report on as few as 20 patients when providing data for IBD or HCV. They can also monitor their performance on quality measures, benchmark themselves in relation to their peers, identify gaps in care and improve patient outcomes — all while avoiding PQRS penalties.

DHRP registration ends on March 14 at 5 p.m. ET. Additionally, the deadline for data entry and submitting your data to CMS is Friday, March 18 at 5 p.m. ET.
