CMS devised a program entitled “Physician Quality Reporting Programs Strategic Visions” otherwise known as Strategic Visions describes how CMS could measure and publicly reporting quality performance of physicians. The goals and objective is that the provider must bring person centered , and access kind of care that produces results. Quality measurement and public reporting of healthcare professionals’ performance occurs via the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), through which eligible healthcare professionals report on certain quality measures, and Physician Compare, which helps patients and caregivers select healthcare professionals participating in Medicare.Participation in PQRS is the basis for many CMS physician quality and payment programs (CMS). In other words through this programs the patients provide a survey of the doctors performance (ie; Medicare patients on for example wait time etc), and were they pleased with the care received. This rating would determine, along with the providers information as to how they would be paid. CMS uses comparative performance information to physicians and medical practice groups through the Physician Feedback/Value-Based Payment Modifier Program. The intent is to provide meaningful and actionable information to physicians so they can improve the care they deliver. CMS also supports rapid cycle quality improvement through learning networks established by the CMS Innovation Center (CMMI) and Quality Improvement Organizations (QIOs) (CMS). This I find is a fair sense of performance improvement given for an evaluation. This will show areas of where patient satisfaction needs improvement. Insurance is a service given, provided to consumers.
CMS has also decided to assist clinicians with using clinical decision tools by allowing doctors to generate their own performance improvement reports on their own EHRs and registries. CMS will continue streamlining and consolidating confidential performance and cost reports currently available through CMS physician programs such as PQRS and Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRURs),while also targeting the broader use of existing vehicles, such as Qualified Clinical Data Registries and EHR vendors, as
a mechanism for providing more timely and frequent feedback to program participants.

CMS quality-based reporting requirements
CMS created the Quality Payment Program in 2015 which makes it mandatory for eligible clinicians to take part in either Advanced Alternative Payment Models or the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). According to Glance et al. (2021), physicians are evaluated in the MIPS utilizing a combined score between zero and one hundred points based on promoting interoperability, quality, and improvement activities. Physicians are mandated to report on six quality measures and might choose six measures from the list of MIPS’s 271 measures.
Out of the six measures, only one needs to be an outcome measure, whereas the other measures can be process measures. Physicians can opt to report quality measures either as groups of physicians or individuals. Dissimilar to Hospital Compare, in which the performance of a hospital is rated utilizing a standardized set of metrics like readmissions and mortality, the performance of physicians in MIPS is measured utilizing a merged score based on metrics that physicians select themselves. Also, physicians have the liberty of reporting the measures on which they perform most excellently (Glance et al., 2021).
How does the EHR support the capture and reporting of data to registries that are used to determine quality-based performance?
Quality improvement registries seek to utilize the systematic collection of data along with other tools to improve care quality. EHR facilitates the collection of data at the point of care. This data is then analyzed to develop clinically useful and meaningful quality measures. To generate data sets sufficiently diverse and huge to make comparisons, data needs to be pooled across clinical care sites, preferably by merging EHR data (Abernethy et al., 2017).
Data can directly be pulled from the EHR’s central data set and transferred to the quality monitoring system. This is achievable by transforming information within the HER into digital and automatically analyzing data. Abernethy et al. (2017) indicate that data sets that have been aggregated, processed, and linked to EHR can be utilized in developing new measures, refining quality measure calculations, and prioritizing measures that need to be focused on in performance improvement initiatives.
