  • Several available dates and times over a 2-week period,
  • Names and email addresses of your team members that you would like invited to the call
  • Number of QCDR measures you will submit for discussion
  1. At least one week prior to the scheduled meeting, send your QCDR measure concepts and specifications in a single Word document or Excel file, to QCDVendorSupport@gdit.com.
