Reporting Success With PQRS
Join Frank Long, Editorial Director of Rehab Management and Physical Therapy Products, as he speaks with
Andrew Hadrich, PT, director of operations, Select Therapy Inc, a physical therapy practice with 4 outpatient clinics located throughout Minnesota.
The Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) can help clinics avoid a 1.5% payment reduction, sometimes making it the difference between a profitable year, the ability to offer higher pay for staff, or invest in new equipment upgrades.
This podcast helps clinics learn to take the guesswork out of providing the required data to Medicare by using complete and accurate reporting that minimizes payment reductions. It also provides tips about how to get front desk personnel, administrative staff, and clinicians to all play a role in avoiding the PQRS payment penalty by using Clinicient software’s automated reporting features.
“It is not challenging for a clinic to meet the requirement of PQRS. The hard part is to let Medicare know you are meeting the requirements.” —Andrew Hadrich
Andrew Hadrich graduated from the College of St. Scholastica with a Doctorate Degree in Physical Therapy in 2010. During his time at St. Scholastica, Andrew worked as the graduate Functional Anatomy and Neuroscience Teacher’s Assistant and served a 2-year term on the College’s Board of Trustees.
Hadrich chose to pursue a career in physical therapy for the complex yet rewarding nature of the profession. He finds great satisfaction in helping an injured patient feel better and return to prior level of function, as well as helping patients overcome chronic pain conditions. Andrew’s specific interests in physical therapy are in outpatient private practice. He specializes in sports medicine, acute and chronic back and neck pain, general orthopedics, vestibular rehabilitation, and concussion rehabilitation.
In 2010 Hadrich joined Select Therapy’s clinical team, and he currently oversees the practice’s Pierz Clinic and administers Pierz High School’s sports medicine program.
