AAPM&R's Registry Provides Data to Demonstrate Your Value and Improve Your Care

The AAPM&R Registry Steering Committee and its volunteer leaders are currently focused on answering the important question: how do we accurately document what it means to be a PM&R physician? These volunteers are working on developing the architecture to collect the specific data points you need to seamlessly and effortlessly prove your value as a physiatrist. By developing this framework, the AAPM&R Registry will be poised to efficiently capture the essential data, saving you time and effort to focus on what really matters: your patients.

AAPM&R's Registry is currently recruiting institutions and practices who are committed to quality improvement to serve as pilot sites for ischemic stroke and low-back pain. Learn more about pilot participation here.
