PQRS is a health care quality improvement initiative established by the federal agency Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and requires eligible medical professionals to report on a set of quality measures. As a qualified registry, pMD will provide medical practices with a comprehensive PQRS software solution so they can successfully capture and report on measures while avoiding the risk of payment penalties.
“Capturing and reporting on PQRS data is more important than ever this year,” pMD CEO Philippe d'Offay said. “We have enhanced and expanded our PQRS functionality to include direct registry submission through pMD. pMD’s charge capture software is an incredibly easy and reliable way for medical organizations to report on PQRS, protecting their revenue from government penalties and improving patient care.”
pMD, whose mobile charge capture app allows physicians to enter their medical billing charges into their smartphones and send text messages securely, has worked with many groups to record PQRS data.
"An important feature of pMD is its ability to integrate PQRS claims reporting into the charge capture process," said Dr. Davies Wong, a pulmonary and critical care specialist with Sharp HealthCare in San Diego, California. "The PQRS prompts remind the doctor to report on a particular PQRS measure and to take appropriate corrective action if needed to be compliant with the quality measures. We would not be able to do claims-based PQRS reporting without pMD."
pMD’s mobile charge capture, secure messaging, care coordination, mobile EHR, and HIE services support doctors across multiple specialties and improve patient care. Doctors use pMD to enter their billing charges into Android, iPhone, iPad, and iPad Mini devices at the point of patient care. pMD increases efficiency and security in a practice through automation and secure, HIPAA-compliant text messaging. Doctors using charge capture are increasing their ROI in a time where Medicare cuts, ICD-10, PQRS, and other costs are significantly impacting profitability. pMD provides free interfaces with most major electronic medical records, hospital information, and medical billing systems, including Allscripts Pro PM, Allscripts Tiger, athenaCollector by athenahealth, Cerner, eClinicalWorks, Epic, GE Centricity (formerly Millbrook and IDX), MEDITECH, MobileMD, NextGen, and Vitera Intergy (Sage).
