What is a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR)?

A QCDR is an entity that collects clinical data from physicians and that has been approved by CMS to report this data to the CMS Quality Payment Program. QCDRs submit specialty-specific measures to CMS each year for approval; physicians can only report these measures through the specialty QCDR.

The Benefits of Using the GIQuIC QCDR

  • Physicians have the ability to submit measures that are meaningful to their specialty practice.
  • Participants can report as an individual or as part of a group practice.
  • GIQuIC streamlines the collection of data and facilitates the submission process for three MIPS performance categories, specifically Quality, Promoting Interoperability, and Improvement Activities.
  • CMS requires that MIPS-participating physicians review their data on a quarterly basis which gives them insight into changes that can be made to foster improvement in the quality of care provided to patients.
  • The GIQuIC MIPS Dashboard allows physicians to review and select measures and estimate their MIPS scores on three of the four performance categories in advance of reporting them to CMS.
