Now Available: 2020 CMS-Approved Qualified Registries and Qualified Clinical Data Registries (QCDRs)

2020 Qualified Registries and QCDRs Qualified Postings Now Available on CMS.gov

On December 20, 2019, CMS posted the CY 2020 approved Qualified Registries and Qualified Clinical Data Registries (QCDRs) qualified postings:

  • 2020 Qualified Registries Qualified Posting – A Qualified Registry is a CMS-approved entity that collects clinical data from an individual MIPS-eligible clinician, group, and/or virtual group and submits the data to CMS on their behalf for purposes of MIPS. These approved Qualified Registries will be able to report data (measures and/or activities) for the Quality, Advancing Care Information, and Improvement Activities performance categories for the 2020 performance period.
  • 2020 Qualified Clinical Data Registries (QCDRs) Qualified Posting – A QCDR is also a CMS-approved entity that collects clinical data from an individual MIPS-eligible clinician, group, and/or virtual group and submits the data to CMS on their behalf for purposes of MIPS. A QCDR is defined as an entity that demonstrates clinical expertise in medicine and quality measurement development that collect medical or clinical data on behalf of MIPS eligible clinicians to track patients and diseases and foster improvement in the quality of care provided to patients. QCDR reporting is different from a Qualified Registry as it is not limited to quality measures within MIPS, QCDRs may also report on approved QCDR measures.
