    There are 153 measures for PQRI in 2009.

    Atleast 3 of the measures needed to be followed for PQRI, which is to be reported 80% of the reporting services by the physician.

    Can you elaborate "80% of the reporting services by the physician"?

    Greatly appreciate your response!

    If you want to make it somewhat simpler, take a look at the reporting groups. A physician has to report all measures in a group for 30 consecutive patients to qualify but once the 30 are done, you don't have to report on any more for the year.
