ASPS Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR)

What is ASPS-QCDR?

The American Society of Plastic Surgeon's Qualified Clinical Data Registry (ASPS-QCDR) is a registry that:

  • Allows the completion, collection, and submission of Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) quality measures and non-PQRS measures including breast reconstruction and wound care measures for members and non-members
  • Is a CMS-approved entity that collects medical and/or clinical data for the purpose of submitting quality performance to CMS to meet quality requirements
  • Provides national and peer benchmark information to allow clinicians to evaluate the quality of their care compared to other physicians and to develop quality improvement plans to correct gaps in care

ASPS-QCDR is a CMS approved quality registry to satisfy CMS physician quality reporting requirements for 2016.
