The Physician Registry Coalition prepared a handout on Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) access to Medicare claims data. Neither the ResDAC process nor quasi-qualified entity program provides QCDRs with the type of access to Medicare claims data that satisfies the requirements to provide such data to QCDRs under Section 105 (b) of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). Access to Medicare claims data is crucial to measuring quality improvement for QCDRs. Therefore, the Coalition requests additional rulemaking separate from the ResDAC process and quasi-qualified entity status to provide QCDR the necessary access to Medicare claims data.
