The GI Quality Improvement Consortium Registry was approved as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry for Merit-based Incentive Payment System reporting this year.
"Now, with MIPS in 2017, GIQuIC as an approved QCDR, will allow providers to report on measures that are meaningful to their specialty practice and will foster improvement in the quality of care provided to patients while being in compliance with reporting requirements," said Glenn M. Eisen, MD, president of the GIQuIC board of directors.
Here are five things to know:
1. GIQuIC launched in 2010 and has since grown as a benchmarking tool for gastroenterology practices.
2. As of January 2017, the registry included more than 4 million colonoscopy cases.
3. CMS approved GIQuIC as a qualified registry for the past three reporting years. Providers are able to report MIPS and non-MIPS measures that are meaningful to their practice.
4. GIQuIC included more than 1,300 participants for PQRS reporting in 2016.
5. GIQuIC will hold a webinar with additional details about reporting for 2017, with information about MIPS reporting requirements.
