The Rheumatology Clinical Registry (RCR) is open for reporting. As we are approaching the end of the 2017 MIPS performance year, however, keep in mind that to report via the RCR, your last date to enter patient information will be Jan. 15, 2018.
You can access the RCR’s updated dashboard here. Remember to use your previous login credentials. The dashboard is a tool used for quality reporting purposes and allows rheumatologists to demonstrate the quality of their care to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The new dashboard will give you an estimated MIPS composite score and can help you avoid a negative payment adjustment in 2018. Note: This RCR dashboard scoring is an estimate and cannot guarantee the type of future payment adjustment; only CMS can determine penalties and bonuses.
