McKesson’ practice insights designated as a 2024 Qualified Clinical Data Registry by CMS

February 8, 2024-  For the eighth consecutive year, McKesson has received approval from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to participate in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR). The designation enables healthcare practices and providers utilizing iKnowMed℠ electronic health record (EHR) to efficiently submit data directly to CMS without engaging a separate registry vendor, streamlining data submission and minimizing administrative burden.

As a CMS-approved QCDR, Practice Insights℠, a performance analytics tool powered by Ontada®, can collect and report clinical data on behalf of clinicians for standard MIPS measures. This designation also provides the additional ability to report on custom QCDR quality measures developed in partnership with physicians in The US Oncology Network (The Network) to drive improvements in quality and cost of care.

In addition to quality measures, practices now have the opportunity to improve patient care by identifying social drivers of health via the integration of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) Distress Thermometer in iKnowMed. In 2024, care teams can monitor patient needs through a comprehensive report dashboard and track screening rates based on the new MIPS 487 Screening for Social Drivers of Health measure. These efforts will help practices ensure all patients are screened and connected with community resources to assist them with health-related social needs.
