I've looked at all of them now and I'm convinced that yours is the best registry. So professional, so simple to use and backed by knowledgeable, personal support. I'm confident that I'll get PQRS reporting right!

This is an intuitive interface that gathers just the info you need and nothing more. Whoever put it together had a good understanding of the info needed and how to set it up logically.

I recommended this solution to my colleagues and they're signing up too!

FYI, we did get a nice check from CMS (over $20,000!) so it is well worthwhile.

"I didn't know that I could have it any better. Somebody needs to let others know about all of the benefits of PQRSPRO!"

RN/Coder, Private Cardiology Practice

About 80% of our patient populate are Medicare, so CMS PQRS program incentives have been very lucrative for us.

RN/Coder, Private Cardiology Practice

We used a popular, more expensive PQRS Registry last year and had issues with the website but could not get anyone on the phone and had to leave voicemail and follow-up with an email.  For the money that we paid, they should have better customer service. PQRSPRO customer service is a Rolls Royce compared to the Volkswagen I experienced last year. When I called, I spoke to someone right away!

RN/Coder, Private Cardiology Practice

The PQRSPRO Registry system was easier to use than the other one.  Chart abstraction was simple and easy to understand and all measure questions were asked at once.  The other system made me wait for a prompt to move on once I answered one question – a much slower process.

RN/Coder, Private Cardiology Practice

The cost of PQRSPRO is much more reasonable than any other!

RN/Coder, Private Cardiology Practice

The final measure report was great and will also be useful for submitting to our malpractice insurance carrier to qualify for a discounted premium rate.

Users reported receiving up to $70,000 from participation in 2010 via our system.

President, Healthmonix

We are very happy with you and your company. Thank you for all of you efforts.

After trying for a couple years to receive the bonus, we finally received it this year using your system.

Your support has been awesome!

I wish we would've known about you three years ago! This was a breeze!

Group Cardiology Practice, Illinois

We are very satisfied with your process and service and confident that our practice will benefit from the incentive and avoid the penalties.
