On December 9, 2021, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) posted the 2022 approved Qualified Clinical Data Registries (QCDRs) and Qualified Registries Qualified Postings in the Quality Payment Program (QPP) Resource Library. The Qualified Postings assist clinicians in the selection of a QCDR or Qualified Registry which will collect and report clinical data to the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) program on their behalf. Qualified Postings provide the names of approved QCDRs and Qualified Registries including the applicable QCDR measures and MIPS quality measures, Promoting Interoperability measures and objectives, and/or improvement activities they are approved to support for the 2022 MIPS performance period.

  • 2022 Qualified Registries Qualified Posting – Included in this posting is a list of Qualified Registries who have been approved to participate in reporting MIPS quality measures, Promoting Interoperability measures and objectives, and/or improvement activities for the 2022 performance period. A Qualified Registry is a CMS-approved entity that collects clinical data from an eligible clinician, group, virtual group, and/or an Alternative Payment Model (APM) Entity and submits the data to CMS on their behalf as a part of MIPS. These approved Qualified Registries may report data (quality measures and/or activities) for the quality, Promoting Interoperability, and improvement activities performance categories.
  • 2022 QCDRs Qualified Posting – Included in this posting is a list of QCDRs who have been approved to participate in reporting QCDR measures and/or MIPS quality measures, Promoting Interoperability measures and objectives, and/or improvement activities for the 2022 performance period. A QCDR is also a CMS-approved entity that collects clinical data from an eligible clinician, group, virtual group, and/or APM Entity and submits the data to CMS as a part of MIPS. A QCDR is defined as an entity that demonstrates clinical expertise in medicine and quality measurement development. QCDRs collect medical or clinical data on behalf of clinicians, groups, virtual group, and/or APM Entities 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 MIPS quality measures. QCDRs may also report on approved QCDR measures. These approved QCDRs may report data (quality measures and/or activities) for the quality, Promoting Interoperability, and improvement activities performance categories.
