QCDR Deadlines Approaching for 2018 MIPS Participation

If you or your group will participate in the 2018 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) using the ACR National Radiology Data Registry (NRDR) ACR Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR), the deadlines for setting up your account and submitting your quality measure data are fast approaching.

Participants must submit some data for each registry they intend to use for MIPS reporting by Oct. 31, 2018. This includes submitting data to all relevant registries within the National Radiology Data Registry (NRDR®) as well as submitting MIPS measure data through the MIPS Participation Portal. Facilities also must have their physician list finalized and have all TINs and NPIs added to their NRDR account by Nov. 30, 2018.

All data for the Dose Index Registry (DIR) must be submitted by Dec. 31, 2018, and all data for other NRDR registries and MIPS measures must be submitted by Jan. 31, 2019.

Adherence to these deadlines will allow you to identify any problems with your data early, before it’s too late to correct any account or data issues.

Learn more about using the NRDR QCDR for MIPS participation, and direct any questions to or create a helpdesk ticket.
