Recent changes to the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) have important implications for IDSA members in clinical practice. It is imperative to report on relevant measures during this calendar year to avoid a payment penalty in 2017 on all Medicare Part B payments. Given that the overwhelming volume of ID patient care is delivered in the inpatient setting, IDSA has provided specific guidance on what relevant measures might be reasonable for ID specialists to report in order to avoid a payment penalty. Please see the Manage Your Practice section of IDSA’s website for more information.
