– Is your hospital contemplating joining a registry but you don’t know where to begin?
– Do the acronyms CJR, QCDR, and PROMs cause you angst?
– Have you heard that registry participation can count towards quality programs but you don’t understand the connection?
– Are you a surgeon needing a registry to meet Meaningful Use requirements?
– Are you in one of the 67 geographical areas mandated by the CMS’s Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) program?
– Is your hospital considering a patient-reported outcome measure (PROMs) program and you want to know more about what that entails?
If so, the American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR) will walk you through everything you need to know about participating in a registry. This session will focus on best practices from over 4,500 surgeons and 675+ hospitals who have successfully implemented and engaged with the data from over 400,000 hip and knee replacement procedures. AJRR will help you to debunk the myth that submitting private health information is complicated, time consuming, and that it takes hundreds of man-hours to participate in a registry.
You’ll also learn how:
• Registry participation can support mandated quality programs – including Meaningful Use, CJR, and PQRS
• To implementing a PROM system in your hospital – what to look out for when starting and helpful tips from current users on what they have learned
• Not all data elements are mandatory – what are the different levels, what does the national registry require, and what is optional
