Importance of a QCDR

Quality Reporting

Providers will not be able to succeed within the MIPS payment structure without a QCDR. While it is possible initially to continue to report quality measures via claims, submitting quality measure (QM) data via the USWR QCDR is what will allow Providers to use the Wound Care and Podiatry Specialty Quality Measure Group, as well as 19 other specialty specific quality measures.

Advanced Care Information (ACI)

In addition to the use of the USWR QCDR for quality measure reporting, submitting data to the US Wound Registry earns points for Advancing Care Information (ACI).

Clinical Practice Improvement Activities (CPIA)

Perhaps more importantly, a QCDR is necessary to succeed in the category of Clinical Practice Improvement Activities (CPIA). That means that participating in a QCDR is needed for 3/4 categories of MIPS.  REVIEW CPIA PROJECTS
