Delving into the root causes of registry stewards’ issues from the NQRN registry conference

June 15, 2017

Fort Collins, CO

During the 2017 National Clinical Registry Conference co-produced by National Quality Registry Network (NQRN) and the Council of Medical Specialty Societies (CMSS), the following themes emerged from the registry stewards in attendance:

  • Registry participation is nowhere near satisfactory – often times under 10%.
  • Collaboration and integration with technical partners is a struggle.
  • Customizable and, ultimately, valuable analytics are a challenge
  • Repurposing the data for use outside of satisfying regulatory requirements just doesn’t work.

Emily Richardson, MD (Encompass Medical Partners) along with David Voccola (Prometheus Research) will delve into the root causes of these challenges and options for overcoming them – without having to hit the hard reset button and redo the registry.
