Clinical Data Registries: Solving for Interoperability
2:00pm - 3:00pmFriday, March 9
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Many national medical specialty and healthcare professional societies and associations operate clinical data registries. Participating organizations and clinicians use registry information to improve health outcomes. Over the past several years, registries have become important instruments for carrying out the performance measurement and reporting needed to carry out value-based payment models. Our national system of registries is segmented by clinical specialty, and registry data lack standardization between registries. In order to successfully implement new payment models, performance measurement will need to occur using data from multiple registries. The lack of registry interoperability impacts the ability of our national system of performance measurement and improvement to support the CMS Quality Payment Program and risk contracts between health plans and provider organizations.
