Abstract

Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI) provides financial incentive to physicians and other healthcare providers who successfully report quality data for services provided under Medicare physician fee schedule. For my capstone project, I worked on automating the PQRI report generation for Providence Health and Services. For this project we collected quality measurements for physicians treating patients with diabetes. Patient data was collected for hemoglobin A1C level, low density lipoprotein and blood pressure from the electronic medical record. For each of the measurements the performance of the physicians was calculated and an output xml file was generated and validated for all the participating providers in Providence Health and Services.
