Healthmonix Qualified Clinical Data Registries
(QCDRs) & Specialty Measures
QCDRs & Measures Designed For Your Specialty
We understand that finding Quality measures that are relevant to your practice specialty can be challenging. That’s why we’ve worked with leaders across specialties to develop the most relevant measures for quality measurement and inclusion in the MIPS program. We also have specialists on board to answer questions about these measures, their intention, their implementation, tips on workflows and everything you need to make MIPS reporting more relevant and less burdensome to your practice, while helping you to improve patient outcomes.
Make your MIPS participation more meaningful by utilizing measures that align with your practice.
Healthmonix works with the following specialties to provide specialty measures & all MIPS measures still available:
How Healthmonix and APA partnered to create the MBHR
Healthmonix has been partnering with the American Psychological Association (APA) for over six years via the Mental and Behavioral Health Registry (MBHR), in developing and implementing mental and behavioral health measures that track patient outcomes that are relevant to everyday practice. The APA and Healthmonix have gathered together leading experts in the field to develop measures that are evidence-based, address gaps in care, and track patient outcomes. With these measures, mental and behavioral health professionals can view their outcomes over time, track both individual patients and patient populations, and compare their performance to others in their field. As well as being valuable measures for tracking your patient outcomes, these measures have been approved by CMS for MIPS reporting. They can be used alone or in combination with other ‘standard’ MIPS measures. Even if not reporting to the MIPS program, professionals can use these for practice assessment and improvement.
How Mental Health Specialists Benefit from the MBHR
The MBHR provides 10 specialty measures addressing many of the most common conditions that clinicians encounter in mental and behavioral health practice. This enables them to spend time focused on patients and outcomes that most impact their practice, rather than ancillary quality measures that the standard MIPS program provided.
With Healthmonix and the APA supporting mental and behavioral health professionals, they receive the best in terms of both specialty knowledge and MIPS reporting support.

Our partnership with Physical/Occupational Therapists and Orthopedists
We understand the pressures being placed on practices. As CMS updates the Physician Fee Schedule and reimbursements are squeezed, don’t let MIPS add to the downward impact. In fact, you can use MIPS reporting to your advantage and counter some of that impact. As MIPS incentives and penalties rise, you don’t want to be on the wrong side of that equation.
Healthmonix has developed measures that specifically focus on the primary outcomes of PT and OT practices. And we have over 100,000 cases in our registry to provide benchmarking and prove our approach.
How Physical/Occupational Therapists and Orthopedists benefit from our QCDR
PTs and OTs, through our QCDR measures, have the ability to utilize evidence-based, patient-reported outcomes to participate in the MIPS program. We’ve convened some of the leading therapists in the country and have built robust, meaningful measures that have been approved by CMS, as an alternative to the less-relevant measures provided in the standard MIPS quality measure list. We help you understand these measures, feed the data from your current systems and not only benefit you from a MIPS financial standpoint, but also help you see any gaps in your practice that you can target. And if not, it validates your high standard of care.
Reduce your administrative burden of tracking measures that are indirectly associated with your scope of care, gain a higher score for the great practice that you are already performing, and leave more time for the focus on your patients.
If you're an audiologist, you know that for years the measures available in the PQRS / MIPS program have not aligned well with your practice. We’ve addressed that need. Working with a team of leading audiologists, we've developed and implemented targeted patient-focused outcome measures for the MIPS program starting in 2021. These measures can be used to report relevant metrics in the MIPS program, and in addition can be used to track and benchmark your performance outside of the program.
Measures developed address hearing loss, tinnitus, BPPV, and cochlear implants. In addition, we are continuing to develop additional measures that will further address the needs of the industry.
The audiology QCDR combines the targeted knowledge of audiology practice with the most experienced registry support. This QCDR allows you to focus on your practice while fulfilling your MIPS reporting requirement and earning an incentive from the program.
The Emergency & Acute Care Clinical Registry (EACCR) has been developed to address the specific needs of Emergency Medicine physicians and hospitalists. With 18 specialty measures for QCDR tracking and reporting, and additional non-reported benchmarks being developed, the focus is on the needs and practices of physicians.
This registry allows hospital-based physicians to focus on Quality and Improvement Activities directly related to the best care management for their patients. With a team of practicing physicians driving and supporting the registry, we offer not only complete MIPS reporting from one of the most trusted registries in the country, but focused support for physicians.
Benefits of the EACCR:
- Most relevant quality measures for ED physicians and hospitalists
- Streamlined integrations with your EHRs to minimize tracking and reporting efforts
- Benchmarking against others in your specialty
- Reduced penalties and increased incentives in the MIPS program
