CMS estimates more than 500,000 clinicians are eligible for its QPP this year alone and are required to report on various quality measures to receive incentives. To succeed with MIPS, many of these providers are turning to Qualified Clinical Data Registries (QCDRs), CMS-approved entities (registries) that collect clinical data for the purpose of improving the quality of care delivered to patients in a particular population.
