The ACR National Radiology Data Registry (NRDR™) has been approved as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) for the CMS Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). Radiologists may use the NRDR QCDR to meet MIPS participation requirements. By using the QCDR to participate in the MIPS program, radiologists can avoid a negative payment adjustment for not reporting and potentially earn an incentive. ACR will submit physician and/or group practice quality measure data, improvement activities and advancing care information measure data to CMS.
Physicians and group practices participating in the NRDR QCDR will receive feedback reports at least four times per year that provide performance rates on their chosen measures and compared to registry benchmarks. Measure data and improvement activity information will be submitted to CMS in March following the end of the reporting year. Physicians will review and approve measure data before it is submitted to CMS. For more information visit www.acr.org/qcdr
