Did your practice complete the PQRI quality reports?  Last year we talked with several practices that thought that the process was not worth the effort.   Comments like these are where physicians get the reputation for not being “good businessmen”.   If your practice had over $50,000 in receipts from Medicare, it would have been worth another $1,000 for you to complete the paperwork.   How long did the paperwork take?   It depends on the type of practice and the measures you were reporting, but we found that in most cases, the return on investment was much greater than the cost of the time it took for the staff to complete the reporting.
