The Measures Codes webpage contains information about Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) quality measures, including detailed specifications and related release notes for the individual PQRS quality measures and measures groups. This page also contains other measures-related documentation needed by individual eligible professionals (EPs) for reporting the PQRS measures through claims or qualified registry-based reporting.
New for 2016 PQRS: The 2016 PQRS Individual Measure Specifications for Claims and Registry Reporting can be viewed on the web-based tool. This is a measures list tool that eligible professionals (EPs) can use to search for measures to report for the 2016 PQRS Program. The web-based measures list tool allows users to search for measures using a number of criteria and then access detailed information about each measure, including measure specifications materials.
CMS has also created an interactive excel search tool for which you can sort measures by Claim Based, Registry Based, Group Measures, or EHR.
