Spine Quality Outcomes Database (SQOD)




The Spine Quality Outcomes Database (SQOD) is a clinical data registry that will follow individuals with spine related issues longitudinally, created by the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPM&R) and the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS). The collected data will have the ability to advance the understanding of the ever-growing spine patient population while demonstrating the quality and value of treatments. Benefits of participating in the SQOD include:

  • Improving patient care
  • Meeting Maintenance of Certification® and MIPS reporting requirements
  • Managing patient populations
  • Bench-marking your practice
  • Enhancing quality and practice efficiency
  • Saving time
  • And more!
