American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Using the SSR for CMS Physician Quality Reporting System

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) is a program where eligible professionals (EPs) currently submit quality data to avoid penalties. Avoidance of penalties is based on successful participation. EPs submit data on quality measures for covered Physician Fee Schedule services to Medicare Part B beneficiaries.
