Our exclusive orthopedic MIPs measures make value measurement possible in Orthopaedic Medicine and Physical Therapy

OrthoQCDR is an approved Qualified Clinical Data Registry established in a collaborative effort of the Hawkins Foundation and Sharecare. Our focus is to develop and offer orthopaedic-specific quality reporting opportunities for practices and respective payers including CMS. We help these providers by:

• Fulfill MIPS reporting - all three categories that require reporting can be satisfied: Quality, Improvement Activities, and Promoting Interoperability.
Report on Specialty Measures – OrthoQCDR offers the entire orthopaedic quality measure set and exclusive MIPS QCDR measures we developed to better relate to specific treatments within our specialty.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is a QCDR? 
A Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) is a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) approved vendor that is in the business of improving health care quality. These organizations may include specialty societies, regional health collaboratives, large health systems or software vendors working in collaboration with one of these medical entities. We have combined the clinical expertise of the Hawkins Foundation with the Sharecare technology platform to meet the unique demands within the complex and fast-pace orthopedic practice world.

How can a QCDR help improve patient care?
One of the ways QCDRs can help to improve the quality of care patients receive is by collecting clinical data from clinicians and reporting this data to CMS on their behalf for purposes of MIPS. QCDR submission differs from qualified registry submission in that QCDRs can submit non-MIPS measures, called QCDR measures, as well as standard MIPS quality measures. We also submit data for the Promoting Interoperability and Improvement Activities on behalf of the clinician(s)

How are OrthoQCDR measures beneficial to the practice? 
Our OrthoQCDR MIPS Quality Measures are:
• Not contained in the annual list of Quality Payment Program (QPP) measures
• Have substantive differences in the population covered by an existing QPP measure
• Have a different manner of submission of an existing QPP measure
• Developed by our scientist and a collaboration of industry experts.
