Abstract The Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) uses a combination of payment incentives and adjustments to promote reporting of quality information by eligible professionals who satisfactorily report data on quality measures for covered Physician Fee Schedule services furnished to Medicare Part B Fee-for-Service beneficiaries. Physicians should become familiar with the PQRS core measures to maintain compliance with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Adherence to these basic guidelines will allow physicians to not only maximize their income, but also increase quality of care, decrease complications, and decrease healthcare expenditures.
