Do the collection types remain the same in 2020 (i.e. claims, EHR, etc.)?
Yes, the collection types remain the same in 2020. “Collection type” refers to how quality performance category data can be collected and includes: electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs); MIPS clinical quality measures (CQMs) (formerly referred to as “registry measures”); Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) measures; Medicare Part B claims measures; CMS Web Interface measures; the CAHPS for MIPS survey measure; and administrative claims measures. “Submission type,” on the other hand, refers to the mechanism by which the submitter type submits data to CMS, including, as applicable: direct, log in and upload, log in and attest, Medicare Part B claims, and the CMS Web Interface.
