Are you having trouble finding MIPS measures relevant to your specialty? Your first resource should be the Explore Measures & Activities tool on the QPP website, which offers Specialty Measure sets composed of relevant MIPS quality measures for 39 different specialties. Another great resource to consider is your national specialty association’s Qualified Registry (QR) or Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR). Many specialty societies have created or endorsed their own registries to help their members collect clinical data and report quality measures to CMS. Some of these registries can be accessed for free or for a discounted rate for specialty society members.
There are many advantages to using registries for MIPS reporting. In fact, registries were the most popular method of collecting MIPS quality measure data among small practices in 2017
