  • monitor the status of audiology quality measures for reporting under PQRS and other health care payers;
  • respond to proposed rules and measure changes by CMS and other measure owners on behalf of the audiology community;
  • educate audiologists regarding audiology quality measures and PQRS reporting requirements.
