DocuTrac Employee Receives PQRS Certification
Hagerstown, Maryland May 1, 2016 - DocuTrac Inc is pleased to announce that Heather Washburn, Director of Implementation and Training, has successfully completed the PQRS/CQM/MIPS Project Manager course and exam receiving her certification through 4Medapproved Certification. The Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), Clinical Quality Measures (CQM), and the Merit Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) are Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) programs. They were implemented to promote value over volume and pay eligible healthcare providers based on the quality of their care instead of standard fees.
According to Ms. Washburn complying with the CMS requirements for these programs is complex and reporting the correct patient data to CMS can be confusing. The certification course she completed will enable her to better assist DocuTrac’s customers and help them navigate this maze of acronyms. Ms. Washburn who has extensive experience in medical billing has been with the DocuTrac team for the past five years. Currently she assists enterprise level customers with implementation, as well as training for both enterprise and professional edition billing software.
President Arnie Schuster, Ph.D. stated that, “DocuTrac is a qualified 2014 Data Submission Vendor, and we are committed to assisting our customers who are eligible providers with the reporting process.” Dr. Schuster went on to say, “DocuTrac has a highly competent staff that receives on-going training to keep up with the many changes and requirements in behavioral healthcare that impact our customers.
