In 2013, physical
therapists (PTs) will be eligible to participate in the Physician Quality
Reporting System (PQRS) under the Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO) for
the first time, as a result of changes in the group practice definition and
changes to the reporting methods for data submission under GPRO. A new APTA podcast explains
the some of the important differences that PTs should consider before deciding
whether to report as an individual physical therapist or as a part of a physical
therapy practice under the GPRO option. The accompanying transcript also includes charts illustrating how these 2
reporting options work from a data analysis standpoint.
