AAHPM and Partners Receive Grant to Fund National Registries Project
Clinical data registries (CDRs) have the potential to demonstrate value and drive measure development within the specialty of hospice and palliative medicine. They also advance Maintenance of Certification and research endeavors and promote national quality improvement. The increasing requirement for quality reporting within value-based payment programs has elevated the need for organized data systems.
Physicians who submit data to a qualified CDR can satisfy some of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Merit-Based Incentive Performance System (MIPS) program requirements. With the emergence of MACRA, several organizations have expressed an interest in coming together to discuss a coordinated approach to developing or connecting CDRs for hospice and palliative medicine.
