On December 10, 2021, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) posted the 2022 QCDR Measure Specifications file in the Quality Payment Program (QPP) Resource Library.

Clinicians, groups, virtual groups, and Alternative Payment Model (APM) Entities can use this resource to search for available QCDR measures applicable to their specialty for the 2022 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) performance period. The fourth tab of this file, “QCDR Specifications,” includes the full set of CMS-approved QCDR measures and includes the QCDR(s) that have permission to submit the QCDR measure for the 2022 MIPS performance period. QCDR measures are only available for reporting through a CMS-approved QCDR and not a Qualified Registry.
