Meridios, Ltd Selected as a Nationwide CMS Qualified Registry to Report Healthcare Quality Measures
Date:6/12/2009

COSHOCTON, Ohio, June 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Meridios received official notification from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services that it has earned the status of "CMS PQRI qualified registry" using its healthMATRIX(TM) health registry / disease management application. Following in an excerpt from the CMS announcement:

"Congratulations! You are a 'qualified' registry for the 2009 PQRI Registry Program. Thank you for your hard work and dedication in getting to this point."

Physician Quality Reporting Initiative is currently a voluntary CMS reporting program that provides a financial incentive to physicians and other eligible professionals. Eligible professionals who satisfactorily report at least three applicable quality measures shall be paid a maximum of one incentive payment, which will be equivalent to 2.0% of Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) allowed charges for all covered professional services furnished during the longest reporting period for which he or she has satisfied reporting. Reporting can be accomplished using one of two methods. Claims-based reporting is a manual process of completing and submitting forms. Registry-based reporting is more automated and uses electronic data transfers. healthMATRIX(TM) is a healthcare quality tracking application with the ability to perform CMS registry reporting.

Using healthMATRIX can provide the following benefits:

Reduced expenses: Meridios is providing PQRI reporting as a NO CHARGE benefit to its clients.

Elimination of the frustration and hassle of claims based submission: Without healthMATRIX(TM), clients are faced with the daunting task of manually completing many CMS forms and tracking patients. With healthMATRIX(TM), the submission process is almost entirely automated.

Increased accuracy and increased probability of maximizing your incentive payment: Reporting will be performed via an automated process by extracting required data directly from electronic medical record (EMR) systems. This will reduce data errors and incorrect formatting.

Meridios is excited about helping its clients to successfully complete PQRI reporting and to receive the associated benefits.
