Renewed: Providers can use ACR’s National Radiology Data Registry for MIPS reporting in 2018

The American College of Radiology (ACR) announced this week that its National Radiology Data Registry (NRDR) has been renewed as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry by CMS. This renewal means that providers can continue to use the NRDR to meet MIPS reporting requirements throughout 2018.

“NRDR continues to be the premier registry for radiology services - and is a valuable tool supporting radiologists’ successful participation in MIPS,” Richard L. Morin, PhD, chair of the NRDR, said in a prepared statement. “We are pleased CMS has again recognized NRDR as a venue for providers to compare their practice performance to regional and national benchmarks and improve imaging care nationwide.”

ACR’s statement adds that using NRDR will allow providers to report as an individual or as part of a group practice. In addition, there will be an opportunity to “gain relevant performance feedback to help enhance patient care and optimize practice value.”

More information about the NRDR is available on the ACR’s website.
