It is the attesting healthcare providers responsibility to comply with all program requirements.

Quality Payment Program (QPP)

The Veradigm Cardiology Registry and Metabolic Registry captures valuable data on coronary artery disease, hypertension, heart failure, atrial fibrillation and diabetes in the outpatient setting to provide clinical insights to practices. The registries have been approved as a single Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) for the 2024 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Program Year, offering eligible participating practices a free and easy solution to report MIPS data in 2024.

Practices must be currently submitting data via System Integration (SI) or Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) to have the registries submit MIPS data to CMS on their behalf.

Benefits of reporting via the Veradigm Cardiology and Veradigm Metabolic QCDR:
  • Reporting MIPS data to CMS is a FREE benefit to eligible practices submitting data through the registries
  • Interoperability with most electronic health record (EHR) systems
  • Flexibility to select your six Quality measures, Promoting Interoperability measures and Improvement Activities that are specific to your practice through an easy-to-use interactive MIPS Dashboard
  • Practices have the option to report MIPS or MVP
  • Practices have the option of reporting at the individual provider level or at the group level (>2 clinicians with at least one MIPS eligible provider, who have reassigned their Medicare billing rights to a single TIN)
  • When a practice reports as a group, their data is scored by CMS at the practice level. Group reporting also means that performance data on Care Compare is posted at the group level, not individual provider level
  • Frequent feedback and monitoring: Participants receive access to quality improvement tools and clinical support, as well as monthly benchmarking reports that include registry and CMS benchmarks for comparison purposes

Quality Measures

Measures indicated as available for public reporting on Care Compare are required to meet certain standards set by CMS. These measures must be statistically valid, reliable, accurate, comparable across submission mechanisms and meet the minimum reliability threshold to be included in the Provider Data Catalog. The measures are posted publicly in plain language, making them easier to understand. Measures in their first two years, measures with fewer than 20 reporters, non-risk adjusted QCDR outcome and non-proportional measures are not available for public reporting.

Requesting use of the QCDR for Reporting

Eligible providers who are actively submitting data to the Veradigm Cardiology and/ or the Metabolic Registry can request we report MIPS data on their behalf to CMS via the QCDR. To initiate this, clinicians must complete an electronic data release consent form (eDRCF). Groups reporting will only need to sign one eDRCF while individual providers are required to submit one eDRCF per reporting provider.

The eDRCF collects clinician and group consent. This is an annual requirement by CMS that allows the QCDR to release data to CMS on the clinicians’ or groups’ behalf. Only data for eligible providers and groups will be submitted to CMS if the QCDR receives a completed eDRCF by the specified deadline. Starting in 2023, all MIPS participants are required to submit their CMS 1500 form for tax identification number validations.
