Leaders in Medicare Quality
The physicians at Rustad Dermatology PC were the first dermatologists in Nebraska to pass all Medicare quality standards, and we remain the only dermatology practice in Nebraska to have passed all Medicare quality standards for the past three years. We are unique in our dedication to quality.
Rustad Dermatology is the only dermatology practice in Nebraska to have passed all Medicare quality standards for the past three years.
The Medicare standards physicians at Rustad Dermatology have passed include:
- PQRS – Physician Quality Reporting System
- EHR – Meaningful Use of Electronic Medical Records
- ERx – Electronic Prescribing (Part of EHR)
Medicare’s Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) in dermatology involves reporting practices in managing melanoma and other important skin conditions. Qualifying physicians must satisfy nine separate quality standards.
Medicare’s Meaningful Use of Electronic Medical Records (EHR) program involves demonstrating the use of electronic records to aid in medical decision-making, to send electronic prescriptions (ERx), and provide patients secure electronic access to their electronic records. Qualifying physicians must satisfy fifteen core objectives, and four additional objectives. Our physicians have completed both Stage 1 and Stage 2 of Meaningful Use.
Look for the Green Check Mark
Medicare’s Physician Compare website allows patients to compare physicians on several quality measures. A green check mark next to each quality reporting measure indicates a physician’s participation in each program. Only programs in which a physician is participating are listed. Few Nebraska dermatologists have successfully participated in these programs. Our practice has participated in these important quality programs since 2012.
Quality Comes First.
