Early Adopters Sought to Use New GRID Measures

The American College of Radiology’s® (ACR’s®) National Radiology Data Registry (NRDR®) team is pleased to announce that the General Radiology Improvement Database (GRID) has added 11 new quality measures for 2020. Seven of these new measures are also available for Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) reporting as part of the ACR’s Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR).

Although these seven QCDR measures are currently only available through GRID reporting, the ACR intends to submit them to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ Call for Measures later this year. If adopted, they will become MIPS measures in future reporting years.

To submit these measures for MIPS consideration, the ACR must acquire testing data proving that they can be successfully implemented at the practice level. The NRDR team is inviting current GRID users to become early adopters and begin reporting data on the new quality measures as soon as possible.

Potential early adopters are encouraged to contact the NRDR team at nrdrsupport@acr.org for more information.
