NRDR Approved as QCDR for 2018

CMS has renewed the ACR National Radiology Data Registry (NRDR®) as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) again for 2018. NRDR has been a CMS-approved QCDR since 2014.

Radiologists use NRDR to meet requirements for the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), reporting a combination of QCDR measures and MIPS measures to fulfill reporting requirements for the Quality category. QCDR measures are chosen from across all NRDR registries.

MIPS-eligible clinicians and groups can take part in the 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 practice quality improvement requirements for Maintenance of Certification
  • Gain relevant performance feedback to help enhance patient care and optimize practice value
