Increase reporting requirements
 Emphasis on National Quality Strategy domains

 New Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR)
option
EHR reporting option ok for GPROs
 Measures groups registry-only reporting
 Measures applicability validation for registry
 Eliminate Administrative Claims option

CMS-approved entity that collects clinical data for patient/disease
tracking for quality improvement
 QCDRs are typically specialty society registries like AQI’s National
Anesthesia Clinical Outcomes Registry (NACOR)
 Measure data across multiple payers, not limited to Medicare
beneficiaries
 Allowed to report “non-PQRS” and PQRS measures for successful
PQRS reporting



Greater potential to meet the 9/3 reporting
requirements; increasing strictness with other
reporting mechanisms.
Meeting multiple requirements/needs:




PQRS participation
Maintenance of certification part IV
Quality improvement
Support better outcome under the Value Modifier
program; using a QCDR, quality scores:



Are easier to monitor and improve throughout the reporting
year
Could be higher because of the frequent
feedback/monitoring
Greater choice of measures to report=potential higher
quality scores.
