What is a QCDR?

A Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) is one of several available reporting mechanisms for satisfactory Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) participation in 2017. A QCDR is a CMS-approved entity that collects medical and/or clinical data for the purpose of improvement in the quality of care furnished to patients. Quality data submitted to a QCDR must include patients across all payers, and is not limited to Medicare beneficiaries. If you decide to use a QCDR for MIPS participation, ACR will submit your quality measures and improvement activities to CMS on behalf of your physicians and/or group practices.
