The American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR) has launched a Web portal where participating surgeons can report to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) program. AJRR is one of 41 organizations in the United States designated as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) by CMS to provide expanded, comprehensive medical procedure outcome information, including patient safety data. PQRS requirements can be completed based on satisfactory participation with AJRR. Physicians who participate in PQRS may earn the 2014 incentive and possibly avoid the 2016 PQRS payment adjustment. Visit the portal to register at www.medconcert.com/ajrr.
