Simplify and Optimize MIPS Participation

A clinical registry that supports Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) reporting, whether through a qualified registry (QR) or a qualified clinical data registry (QCDR), is one piece of a comprehensive solution that drives quality improvement.

Clinicians who participate in QCDRs drive their own success with quality reporting. They also:

  • Optimize reimbursement and avoid penalties.
  • Know where they stand and what to do to improve.
  • Take control of their performance and payments.

Make MIPS Meaningful with a QCDR

Whether MIPS is core to your program, simply a practical way to support your clinicians and members, or both, you need a reporting solution that makes participation easy, successful, and sustainable. Here’s our approach to MIPS reporting through QCDRs and QRs.

Customize a QCDR for MIPS

A Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) includes the right measures that gauge performance and ultimately improve quality. Your QCDR should allow for annual updates to specialty-specific measures and adjustments to the MIPS program.

Make MIPS Reporting Simple

Clinicians need their MIPS solution to be easy and effective. Automated data collection removes the burden of participation. Intuitive reports make it simple for clinicians to see how they are performing, make adjustments and improvements, and optimize reimbursements.

Manage MIPS with Ease

A modern QCDR platform should make MIPS program administration a breeze. It should handle everything from provider onboarding to technical support so you can focus on providing the clinical expertise needed to make participation meaningful.

Powerful MIPS and QCDR Reporting Tools

With the right technology, you can make both MIPS reporting and registry participation simple and easy. RegistryX offers powerful and practical MIPS tools that are fully integrated with your registry. The data available in RegistryX is automatically available for MIPS and any related quality improvement efforts. Clinicians and administrators will be able to:

  • Participate in all MIPS categories.
  • Report specialty-specific quality measures.
  • Monitor performance rates and identify penalty status.
  • Report on the Group or Individual Level.
  • Drill into estimated scores in every category.
  • Select which MIPS Quality measures, Improvement Activities, and Promoting Interoperability attestations to submit to CMS.
  • Rely on our data science engine to submit the highest performing measures on your behalf - instead of manually selecting them.
  • Review individual patient records to verify the accuracy and integrity of the data.

FAQ

What Is a QCDR and How Is It Used?

The Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) is a Quality Payment Program that financially incentivizes improving care quality. A qualified clinical data registry (QCDR) can serve as a MIPS reporting solution, while supporting individual clinician and specialty-wide performance improvement.

Specifically, a QCDR can:

  • Facilitate quality improvement, patient safety initiatives, and research.
  • Report on the right measures to optimize future CMS reimbursement.
  • Allow clinicians to spend time delivering care instead of documenting it.
  • Help clinicians know where they stand and what to do to improve.

While clinical data registries provide the framework for quality improvement in many healthcare settings, QCDRs are uniquely positioned to drive robust engagement by specialist physicians. By offering relevant, specialty-specific quality measures, QCDRs can be used to satisfy MIPS reporting requirements. The most effective quality measures in this context are those that seamlessly integrate into clinician workflow, have low barriers for data collection, fairly attribute outcomes to the proper clinician, and measure performance gaps in a manner that allows for feedback and subsequent improvement.
