ACC/NCDR is a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR). A QCDR is a CMS-approved entity that collects medical and/or clinical data for the purpose of patient and disease tracking to foster improvement in the quality of care provided to patients. QCDRs collect and submit Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) quality measures on behalf of individual Eligible Professionals (EPs) and PQRS Group Practices. To be considered a QCDR for purposes of PQRS, an entity must self-nominate and successfully complete a qualification process.
Individual EPs and PQRS Group Practices who satisfactorily participate in PQRS through a QCDR may avoid the 2018 negative payment adjustment (-2.0%).
