Improve Patient Care and Enhance Practice Efficiency and Profitability

April 25, 2013

Learn how the AGA Digestive Health Outcomes Registry® can help your practice meet payor requirements, report to CMS Physician Quality Reporting System, enhance quality and more.

The AGA Digestive Health Outcomes Registry® is the only registry made by GIs for GIs and allows clinicians to:

  • Participate in payor incentive programs.
  • Report to CMS Physician Quality Reporting System.
  • Meet meaningful use requirements.
  • Enhance quality and practice efficiency.
  • Seamlessly integrate with EMR and Clinical Systems.

In an era of accountable care, outcomes matter, not processes. The AGA Registry uses evidence-based guidelines and NQF-endorsed measures developed by GIs for GIs. These outcome-based measures, not process-based measures used by other registries, are the only ones used by national payors to determine if you meet their requirements.

The AGA Registry will help your practice meet payor requirements for outcomes-driven programs, such as those used by UnitedHealthcare® and Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina. The AGA Registry is also a CMS-certified registry, enabling practices to directly submit data to the CMS Physician Quality Reporting System for the hepatitis C measures group and avoid penalties.

The registry was built to integrate with your EMR or endowriter and become a natural part of clinical workflow, rather than extra work for your practice. By using AGA’s certified vendors — gMed’s gGastro V. 4, MD-Reports and CORI — your data goes directly into the AGA Registry. If you don’t use these vendors, you can use FigMD as a low-cost solution for integrating the AGA Registry with your EMR.
