Alpha II Hosts June 24 Webinar on Integrating PQRS Functionality into EHR and Practice Management Systems

TALLAHASSEE, Fla., June 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alpha II, LLC, a leading developer of software platforms, software as a service and publications that support the healthcare revenue cycle, announced today a free webinar for electronic health record (EHR) and practice management (PM) system vendors, billing companies and healthcare IT consultants. The session, titled "Facilitating Quality Compliance: The Value of Integrating PQRS Registry Functionality into Existing EHR and Practice Management Systems," is described below:

WHAT: Through the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) provides participating eligible physicians with objective and actionable feedback on quality-based measures in an effort to improve the quality and efficiency of healthcare. With complex measurement options and penalties that change from one year to the next, understanding and meeting PQRS requirements can be an overwhelming task for your customers.

Because of this, many healthcare practices are leaning on the expertise and experience of their EHR and PM system partners to help carry this load in a more streamlined effort to remain compliant, receive meaningful use feedback, reduce penalties, and obtain maximum reimbursement.
