Her NEW training packages for 2015 include the following:

  • Detailed recording templates that match PQRS measures with CPT encounter codes open to psychologists and social workers for reporting via Claims-Based, Registry for individual measures or the Dementia Measures group. (By reviewing all three options for PQRS reporting, practitioners can be better informed which is the best method for them to use throughout 2015. If you choose to report through a Registry, you still need to perform the measures at the time of the clinical service. The reporting templates can be duplicated for up to 10 providers. (price of $5 per template per provider)
  • A set of 2 one hour DVDs divided into chapter topics.
  • Downloadable slides
