The Medicare Learning Network (MLN) of the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) offers a webinar on the 2016 Annual Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRURs), Thursday, October 19, 2017, from 12:30 - 2:00 PM Central Time.

On September 18, 2017, CMS made the 2016 Annual QRURs available to all group practices and solo practitioners nationwide. This event provides an overview of the report and explains how to interpret and use the information.

2016 Annual QRURs show how groups and solo practitioners performed in 2016 on the quality and cost measures used to calculate the 2018 Value-Based Payment Modifier (Value Modifier) and how the Value Modifier will be applied to payments. Learn more on the 2016 QRUR and 2018 Value Modifier webpage. This event will be more meaningful if you have your report in front of you to follow along.
