QCDR Designation

The AUA Quality (AQUA) Registry is recognized by CMS as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR). This designation enables Eligible Professionals (EPs) who participate in the AQUA Registry a seamless way to report quality measures to CMS and other private insurers. Utilizing a QCDR provides physicians more options to meet the PQRS requirements of reporting on a minimum of 9 measures covering 3 National Quality Strategy (NQS) domains for at least 50% of the EP's patients seen during the participation period. At least 1 of the 9 measures submitted must be an outcome measure. Participating physicians will avoid a negative payment adjustment by meeting these reporting requirements.

The AQUA Registry QCDR will facilitate the submission of the following measures on behalf of its eligible professionals for the 2016 reporting period beginning on January 1, 2016, and will end on December 31, 2016.
