Statement of Need
Documentation and reporting of quality measures have become an integral part of medical practice. There are assessment and management PQRS measures for the care of patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

Together with recent ACR practice recommendations, analysis of quality data can help enhance the care of patients with RA.
