The GIQuIC Registry has been approved as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) for reporting to CMS. 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. GIQuIC has offered QCDR reporting as a benefit since the 2014 reporting year, facilitating endoscopists’ documentation of compliance with quality measures.
