Below are some links to Quality and Resource Use Report (QRUR) templates, rules and procedures, and other supporting details for the QRUR that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services disseminated in September 2014 both doctors that are solo practitioners as well as physicians that practice as a group.
However, the 2014 Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRUR) issued by the CMS are only made available to individual and group practitioners that met the following criteria: (1) There should be at least 1 physician billed under the TIN in 2013, and (2) the TIN should have a minimum of 1 qualified case for at least 1 of the quality or cost measures included in the Quality and Resource Use Reports. Also, CMS did not distribute 2013 QRUR group practitioners or individual practices who are taking part in the Medicare Shared Savings Program, the Pioneer ACO Model, as well as the Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative.
