QMAS is closing in July 2013 – what you need to know

The Calculating Quality Reporting Service (CQRS) is replacing the Quality Management and Analysis System (QMAS), the system currently used to calculate payments to GPs under the Quality & Outcomes Framework (QOF). While QMAS will be used to calculate QOF achievement for 2012/13, CQRS will be the new system for calculating and reporting on QOF for GP practices across England for the 2013/14 financial year. Registration for training on CQRS is scheduled to open in early January 2013. For more information on what practices need to do in preparation for QMAS closing down, and CQRS going live please see here for further information.
