CMS seeks physician participants for study on quality reporting burdens

CMS is enrolling physicians in a one-year study that runs from April 2018 to March 2019 to identify and address the burdens associated with reporting on quality measures.

The agency plans to review clinical workflows and data collection methods using different submission systems to better understand physicians' challenges in collecting and reporting quality data. Ultimately, CMS wants to recommend changes that would reduce burden, improve quality data collection and reporting, and enhance clinical care.

Physicians are able to participate if they are eligible for the Merit-based Incentive Payment System. Those who successfully participate in the study will receive full credit for the 2018 MIPS Improvement Activities performance category.

Applications for the study are due March 23.
