A Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) is a CMS-approved entity that collects clinical data on behalf of clinicians for data submission. By achieving registry status, KHS's Doctors Quality Reporting Network (DQRN) marries the collection of patient data and the submission of data in one entity for physicians. The DQRN, sponsored by KHS, currently submits National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and ONC certified Electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs), Promoting Interoperability (PI) and Improvement Activities (IA) to CMS. These measures are standardized and intended to provide reliable indicators of high quality patient care. The metrics cover management of chronic diseases, preventive care screening, use of appropriate medications, use of electronic medical records, patient engagement and overall cost of care reductions.
Physicians and clinicians across the nation have a trusted choice when reporting key components of the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) as a part of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' (CMS) Quality Payment Program (QPP).

To utilize the KHS DQRN, physicians and clinicians must be participating members in one of the following health information networks delivered in partnership with that state’s medical society: HealtheParadigm in Georgia; Carolina eHealth Network in South Carolina; CTHealthLink in Connecticut; OneHealth New Jersey; SHINE-Show Me Health Information Network of Missouri; HealthSYNC of Louisiana; or the Kansas Health Information Network.
