Goshen, NY, United States, 2012/01/10 - Waiting Room Solutions and NetHealth, a leader in clinical performance improvement and CME programs, announced a partnership where Waiting Room Solutions and their clients would have access to NetHealth's 1st Ascent PQRS Registry.
Waiting Room Solutions (WRS), a leading web based EMR and Practice Management System (PM) provider and NetHealth, a leader in clinical performance improvement and CME programs, have partnered to provide Waiting Room Solutions clients with an integrated PQRS Registry System. The CMS accepted reporting method is built in to the system and clients can be rest assured that submissions will be received without error. 1st Ascent was specifically designed with the busy clinician in mind. Unlike many other registries, 1st Ascent provides essential feedback on practice information in real time. It has a built in self check, ensuring that all performance calculations are acceptable for submission to CMS.
The Physicians Quality Reporting System (PQRS) was created in 2006 to provide physicians a financial incentive for engaging in outcomes reporting. By reimbursing physicians up to 1% of all FFS Medicare receipts, the PQRS hopes to expand quality reporting and improve overall quality of patient care.
The PQRS incentive payments are available until 2014. Beginning in 2015, EPs who do not satisfactorily report Physician Quality Reporting System measures will be subject to payment adjustments. The EHR incentive program, which began in 2011, allows EPs to earn incentive payments for up to 5 years if they elect to receive their incentive payment through Medicare or up to 6 years if they elect to receive their incentive payment through Medicaid.
Waiting Room Solutions is thrilled to partner with such a premier provider, NetHealth, provide clients with better services interated with its superior EHR solution.
