Emergency – Clinical Performance Registry (E-CPR) Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR)

We are dedicated to improving the quality of emergency care across the country by reporting and sharing performance and quality data. We believe that direct provider feedback on performance and quality indicators improves patient care. 

 

MedAmerica has been approved to become a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
