Physicians give PQRI poor ratings

American Medical Association, October 30, 2008
Key elements of Medicare's Physician Quality Reporting Initiative must be improved so that physicians can successfully participate and use the information to increase the quality of patient care, according to an American Medical Association's survey of physicians who participated in the PQRI during its first year of implementation. More than six out of 10 physicians surveyed rated the program difficult, and only 22% were able to download the PQRI feedback report for their practice.
