Pathologists Quality Registry

It Pays to Deliver Quality Care.

Getting paid fairly for the value your practice provides is essential. The Pathologists Quality Registry positions your practice for success with more CMS approved pathology-specific quality measures. This eases your compliance with MIPS quality reporting and strengthens your opportunity for payment bonuses.

So, you spend less time on requirements and more time practicing.


Pathologists Quality Registry Benefits

Preserving the value of pathology and simplifying regulatory compliance for pathologists has been our collective relentless pursuit. With our advocacy leadership and recognized expertise in pathology and laboratory quality improvement, the Pathologists Quality Registry optimally positions you to succeed as these new payment models continually evolve.

The Pathologists Quality Registry is powered by FIGmd*, a leading provider of clinical data registries and is the first pathologist-specific qualified clinical data registry to earn qualified clinical data registry (QCDR) status from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). As a CMS-approved QCDR, our registry simplifies compliance with unique access to additional pathology-specific quality measures outside of PQRS, and when applicable, helps elevate your MIPS quality score. That’s smart, as a higher quality score positions you for higher payment bonuses. Additionally, continue to improve your practice performance by identifying opportunities with the registry’s benchmarking reports so you may compare your practice with other pathology practices for advancing quality and greater patient care.

*FIGmd, Inc. operates the largest clinical data registries in the country providing clinical data registry, analytics and data reporting solutions to medical practices, specialty societies, medical professional associations, hospitals, health systems and others.

We chose to work with FIGmd based on their experience with medical specialty societies and their innovative approach to making data collection meaningful. They are known for developing registries that are simple to implement and easy to use.
