EHC Program Update: Registry of Registries (RoPR) Data Definitions Draft Reports; Upcoming RoPR Webinar

effective health care program - helping you make better treatment choices

Upcoming Webinar Demonstrates How to Use the Registry of Patient Registries (RoPR)

Please join us for a webinar to learn about the new self-registration pathway in the RoPR (Registry of Patient Registries:  https://patientregistry.ahrq.gov/).  

The RoPR is an AHRQ-funded data entry system that allows patient registry owners to provide information about their registry to promote collaboration, reduce redundancy, and improve transparency among registry holders.  The RoPR replaces the centralized repository developed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and will provide a centralized source of information for MIPS eligible clinicians, Medicaid eligible professionals, Medicare and Medicaid eligible hospitals, and critical access hospitals looking for public health and clinical data registry electronic reporting options.

Presenters will discuss the history and purpose of the RoPR, describe its key features, and demonstrate how to register a patient registry using the new self-registration pathway in the RoPR.
