After extensive analysis, AMA opposes merger of pharmacy chain and health insurer SAN FRANCISCO –…
On October 18, CMS opened the 30-Day Preview Period for the 2016 performance information targeted to be publicly reported on Physician Compare starting in December 2017. The preview was scheduled to end on November 17 at 8pm ET. Due to a technical issue preventing the data from properly displaying in the preview portal, the Provider Quality Information Portal (PQIP), all data were not viewable for the first week of preview. This display issue has now been resolved. We are extending preview through Friday, December 1 at 8pm ET to provide more time for clinicians and groups to preview their performance data as a result of this technical issue.
Additionally, the Physician Compare team is currently outreaching to all clinicians and groups that have already accessed PQIP to preview their data to share the information above. We would appreciate the AMA helping us disseminate the Physician Compare preview extension information to stakeholders. The Physician Compare team will also be disseminating this information via our listserv.
