During a National Provider Call on March 18, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services will explain how providers can report one time on four Medicare quality reporting programs.

The programs include EHR meaningful use, Physician Quality Reporting System, Value-Based Modifier, and Medicare Shared Savings/Pioneer accountable care organizations. “Satisfactory reporters will avoid the 2017 PQRS negative payment adjustment, satisfy the Clinical Quality Measure component of the Medicare EHR Incentive Program, and satisfy requirements for the VM, avoiding the VM payment adjustment,” according to a CMS notice.

The target audience for the call includes physicians, eligible professionals under Medicare programs, therapists, medical group practices, practice managers, medical and specialty societies, and insurers.

The 90-minute call, which will include a Q&A segment, starts at 1:30 p.m. ET, with registration to participate closing at noon on March 18, or when available space has been filled. More information is available here. A fact sheet, titled “How to Report Once for 2015 Medicare Quality Reporting Programs,” is here.
