About this Registry

The National Home-Based Primary Care & Palliative Care Registry, created in collaboration with the American Academy of Home Care Medicine, The West Health Institute, and Premier, Inc, is intended to improve patient care by putting population-appropriate measures into the field, benchmark across home-based medical practices around the country, help practices engage in a learning community focused on quality improvement, and provide a mechanism for home-based medical providers to report quality indicator data to CMS in the context of value-based care and payment.

This registry has been approved by CMS as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) for eligible clinicians, groups, and virtual groups since 2016.

Measures That Matter
This registry's measure library is comprised of 23 clinical quality measures (CQMs) and 7 specialty-related QCDR measures approved for 2019 MIPS reporting. Five additional measures are available for quality improvement use only.

Improvement interventions to close gaps in patient care

The registry identifies possible interventions for improvement based on clinical quality gaps found through calculating your selected quality measures.
