According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), immunization rates among adults have historically been low and vary between immunization types in the Medicare population. There is an even greater variation between racial and ethnic groups. Qualis Health’s Practice Innovation consultants are working with practices in Idaho and Washington to help increase immunizations and prepare them to meet the evolving requirements of the CMS Value-Based Payment Modifier program in which Medicare payment is determined by publicly reportable performance measures via the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS).
