The deadline for CMS' 2016 Physician Quality Reporting System EHR submissions has been extended to March 13, 2017.

The 2016 EHR data submissions, which were initially scheduled for a Feb. 28, 2017, deadline, apply to eligible professionals, Physician Quality Reporting System group practices, qualified clinical data registries and qualified EHR data submission vendors.

Eligible professionals who do not report their 2016 quality measure data to meet 2016 Quality Reporting Document Architecture requirements will receive downward payment adjustments on Medicare Part B Physician Fee Schedule services in 2018.
