For 2016, is it acceptable for group practices participating in the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) via the group practice reporting option (GPRO), referred to as PQRS group practices, to report via more than one mechanism?

Yes, PQRS group practices may also report using mechanisms other than what was selected during GPRO registration. Eligible professionals may also report individually. Additionally, data submitted from multiple vendors, via the selected mechanism, will be accepted, but will not be combined to meet the reporting requirements. For example, a group practice reporting via a qualified registry may submit measures to CMS from more than one registry vendor.
