Submit Your Quality Measure Concept for Development

Committed to supporting your practice, the ACR is seeking concepts for measure development! Submit your measure concept to support the delivery of high-quality care in Radiology.

Measure concepts are sought regardless of their stage of development (e.g., from high-level ideas to detailed measures in use). The ACR Measurement Strategy Group, comprising the Quality and Safety and Economics Commissions' leaders and a subset of members will review submitted measure concepts. Those concepts meeting the criteria for high priority will be charged for development or refinement by the ACR Metrics Committee.

The measure concepts developed or refined by the Metrics Committee into fully formed measures are intended for use in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) either through the ACR Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) or as a MIPS clinical quality measure (CQM). Both measure reporting pathways are directly linked to physician payment under CMS' MIPS regulation.

Measure concepts submitted for prioritization may address a variety of topics or include concepts for updating current MIPS measures. Please complete the Measure Concept Submission Form here. All submissions require a completed Evidence Source Form linked here.
