If your practice wishes to participate in PQRS as a group for the 2015 reporting year, you must register for the Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO) by June 30, 2015 using the Physician Value-PQRS (PV-PQRS) registration system.
GPRO Reporting Choices
When you register your group, you need to select a GPRO reporting method:
- Web interface
- Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers & System (CAHPS) for PQRS via a certified survey vendor.
The reporting mechanism can be changed at any time during the registration period, but you must do so before the June 30, 2015 deadline.
GPRO Authorized Access
In order to access the PV-PQRS registration system, your group needs an authorized representative with an approved Individuals Authorized Access to the CMS Computer Services (IACS) account.
For IACS details and GPRO registration information, please visit the CMS self-nomination/registration page. You can also view the slide deck from the 4/16 MLN Connects presentation How to Register for the PQRS Group Practice Reporting Option.
