CMS Certifies Anesthesia Quality Institute's NACOR Registry as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry

CMS has certified the Anesthesia Quality Institute's National Anesthesia Clinical Outcomes Registry as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry.

The Anesthesia Quality Institute is a nonprofit subsidiary of American Society of Anesthesiologists. AQI maintains NACOR, which tracks patient and disease data to improve quality of care, and reports physician performance. The QCDR designation allows anesthesiologists to have access to more than 12 anesthesia-related measures. In the next five years, CMS will phase out claims-based reporting in favor of registry-based reporting.
