CMS Deems NRDR a Qualified Clinical Data Registry for 2018

Providers can continue to use NRDR for MIPS reporting

Reston, VA – Radiology professionals can continue to use the American College of Radiology (ACR) National Radiology Data Registry (NRDR™) to meet requirements for the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has renewed NRDR’s status as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) for 2018.

Eligible clinicians can take part in NRDR QCDR to:

  • Meet MIPS requirements based on satisfactory QCDR participation
  • Manage submission of traditional MIPS and QCDR quality measure data as well as improvement activities and advancing care information measures to CMS using one interface
  • Report as either an individual or as a part of a group practice via the Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO)
  • Have the opportunity to meet MOC practice quality improvement requirements
  • Gain relevant performance feedback to help enhance patient care and optimize practice value  

“NRDR continues to be the premier registry for radiology services - and is a valuable tool supporting radiologists’ successful participation in MIPS,” said Richard L. Morin, PHD, FACR, FAAPM, chair of the National Radiology Data Registry (NRDR). “We are pleased CMS has again recognized NRDR as a venue for providers to compare their practice performance to regional and national benchmarks and improve imaging care nationwide.”
