A Qualified Registry (QR), similar to a QCDR, is a Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) entity that collects data from an individual MIPS-eligible clinician, group and/or virtual group and submits the data to CMS on the individual’s behalf for the purposes of MIPS. QRs provide many of the same benefits as a QCDR except a QR can only report on specific MIPS measures supplied by CMS. Also, a QR does not have the ability to create new measures to be used for reporting.
