Wednesday, February 01, 2012 New PQRS Discussion Forum Launched APTA recently launched a new Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) discussion forum for members in APTA Communities. Members can find answers to frequently asked questions, post new questions, and share their experiences including best practices for reporting successes in this program. The new discussion board is part of APTA's efforts to increase member resources for this program in anticipation of the upcoming payment adjustments in 2015. The decision by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to use data from the calendar year 2013 reporting period to inform the 2015 payment adjustment for PQRS has prompted many physical therapists who have previously not participated in the program to begin reporting this year. To access the community, go to APTA Communities and click PQRS in the lefthand menu or use the direct link available on the PQRS page.
