The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently posted the lists of approved Qualified Registries and Qualified Clinical Data Registries (QCDRs) for 2018:

  • 2018 Qualified Registries Qualified Posting – A Qualified Registry is a CMS-approved entity that collects clinical data from an individual MIPS-eligible clinician, group, and/or virtual group and submits the data to CMS on their behalf for purposes of Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). These approved Qualified Registries will be able to report data (measures and/or activities) for the Quality, Advancing Care Information, and Improvement Activities performance categories for the 2018 performance period.
  • 2018 Qualified Clinical Data Registries (QCDRs) Qualified Posting – A QCDR is also a CMS-approved entity that collects clinical data from an individual MIPS-eligible clinician, group, and/or virtual group and submits the data to CMS on their behalf for purposes of MIPS. However, QCDR reporting is different from a Qualified Registry as it is not limited to quality measures within MIPS, QCDRs may also report on approved QCDR measures.
