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.
