Quality measures are used to track patient care, connect outcomes with processes, and meet third-party payer requirements, such as the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). Reg-ent allows participants to track performance and benchmark against peers in Reg-ent for specialty-specific (i.e., QCDR) and public (i.e., QPP) measures.

QCDR Measures

Reg-ent’s 2020 Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) designation includes approval of 17 otolaryngology-specific measures developed by and for AAO-HNS members. Reg-ent participants who have direct EHR integration with Reg-ent may use the QCDR measures for MIPS 2020 reporting. Reg-ent Web Tool participants do not have access to the QCDR measures but are able to use QPP measures for MIPS. See below for the list of QCDR measures in Reg-ent and their measure specifications.

QPP Measures

In addition to the QCDR measures, Reg-ent offers Quality Payment Program (QPP) measures. These measures are publicly available through CMS and cover topics both general and otolaryngology-specific. All Reg-ent participants have access to QPP measures for MIPS 2020 reporting. See below for the list of QPP measures in Reg-ent and their measure specifications:
