Participation promotes better patient care.
The registry will enable the collection of performance measures for image-guided interventional procedures, and participating facilities and physicians will receive reports based on aggregated benchmarks to facilitate patient safety and quality improvement efforts. In addition, the IR registry has the potential to provide participants with additional opportunities to fulfill CMS Physician Quality Reporting System reporting requirements, and gain maintenance of certification credit from the American Board of Radiology.
