• Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS)

  • 2016 PQRS Diabetic Retinopathy Measures Group

    New in 2016, this measures group gives ophthalmologists another way to successfully report PQRS in 2016. Similar to the Cataracts Measures Group, you can only report the measures group through the IRIS® Registry. Note: Because of the ICD-10 code changes that take effect Oct. 1, you must take at least some, but no fewer than one, qualifying patients’ blood pressure (per Measure 317 of the group) by Sept. 30 to get credit for the measures group.
