Clinical Data Registries: Solving for Interoperability

2:00pm - 3:00pm Friday, March 9
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Murano 3301

Description

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. Learn how the registry community is working to improve interoperability.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Explain interoperability concepts, how they apply to registries, why registry interoperability needs to be improved and what is being done about it
  • Describe an interoperability solution process and discuss how organizations can use it to carry out interoperability demonstration projects
  • Classify potential focus areas for good interoperability demonstration projects that have wide applicability and can contribute to the general health IT infrastructure that supports interoperability
  • Interpret the current state of registry interoperability, particularly where the barriers are and how numerous conflicting stakeholder incentives can be aligned to overcome them
  • Express how you can become involved in this work and contribute to solution building
