The Medicare Access and CHIP Re-authorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) streamlined a collection of quality programs into a single system where Medicare physicians and other clinicians have a chance to be rewarded for better care.
The Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) four performance categories– Quality, Clinical Practice Improvement Activities (referred to as “Improvement Activities”), meaningful use of certified EHR technology (referred to as “Advancing Care Information”), and Resource Use (referred to as“Cost”).
Under MIPS, there are several data submission methods, one of which is a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR). A Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)-approved QCDR is an entity that collects clinical data from MIPS clinicians (both individual and groups) and submits it to CMS on their behalf for purposes of MIPS.
