Learn how you can successfully participate in public reporting submitting GI-specific measures

The GIQuIC Registry has been approved as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) for reporting to CMS for the 2017 and 2018 reporting years. The QCDR reporting mechanism is a dynamic reporting option that allows providers to report on measures that are meaningful to their specialty practice and foster improvement in the quality of care provided to patients.

Since 2010, GIQuIC has grown in value as a clinical benchmarking tool for gastroenterology practices, with over 5 million colonoscopy cases in January 2017 and growing. GIQuIC has offered QCDR reporting as a benefit since the 2014 reporting year, facilitating endoscopists’ documentation of compliance with quality measures.
