AAPM&R’s Registry is a single repository of data which will aid the specialty by guiding efforts to reduce burnout, defend scope of practice, demonstrate value and provide data to improve patient care.
AAPM&R’s Registry success will come from harnessing traditional EMR data with Patient Reported Outcomes data. AAPM&R’s Registry is built on ArborMetrix RegistryX, which leverages healthcare interoperability standards to intake data and transform that data into real-world evidence through smart analytics and intuitive and flexible reports.
Decision-making demands data – factual evidence that your skills and services are deserving of a patient’s patronage, an institution’s referral, or a payer’s reimbursement. The accurate documentation of rehabilitation through data is an effort that will involve all of physiatry, together, and it starts with AAPM&R’s Registry. Participating in AAPM&R’s Registry allows you to:
- Benchmark your practice
- Manage patient populations
- Improve patient care
- Join community of quality improvement
AAPM&R’s Registry is initially launching two data collection programs centered on ischemic stroke and low-back pain conditions and will expand to other PM&R clinical areas.
