Connecting for Better Care with New Statewide Health Information Exchange

Physicians and clinicians participating in New Jersey’s health information network, OneHealth New Jersey, 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). OneHealth New Jersey received notification its Doctors Quality Reporting Network Qualified Clinical Data Registry for Quality Reporting (QCDR) application has the stamp of approval from CMS for 2018.

As a CMS-approved QCDR, the Doctors Quality Reporting Network can collect clinical data on behalf of participating clinicians for data submission and compute quality measures across providers, creating the potential for even higher quality scores and a more accurate, patient-centric view of the quality of care delivered. This is in stark contrast to the current model which computes quality measures from only the data in the provider’s EHR.

"The benefit to using Doctors Quality Reporting Network is CMS submissions can be calculated using data directly extracted from OneHealth New Jersey, thereby decreasing the reporting burden," said Kennedy Ganti, MD, OneHealth New Jersey Advisory Committee chairman. "This helps New Jersey physicians and clinicians make the transition to value-based payments and quality reporting as efficient and as seamless as possible."

The Doctors Quality Reporting Network currently submits National Council on Quality Assurance (NCQA) and ONC certified electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs), Advancing Care Information (ACI) and Improvement Activities (IA) to CMS. To utilize the Doctors Quality Reporting Network, physicians and clinicians must be participating members of OneHealth New Jersey.
