Qualified Clinical Data Registry

A Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) is a CMS-approved entity that collects clinical data on behalf of clinicians for data submission. By achieving registry status, the Doctors Quality Reporting Network (DQRN) marries the collection of patient data and the submission of data in one entity for physicians. The DQRN currently submits ONC and Drummond certified electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs), Promoting Interoperability and Improvement Activities (IA) to CMS. These measures are standardized and intended to provide reliable indicators of high quality patient care. The metrics cover management of chronic diseases, preventive care screening, use of appropriate medications, use of electronic medical records, patient engagement and overall cost of care reductions.

Physicians and clinicians across the nation have a trusted choice when reporting key components of the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) as a part of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Quality Payment Program (QPP).
