In June 2014, the ACR launched the Rheumatology Informatics System for Effectiveness (RISE) Registry and made it available to physicians and health professionals who are active ACR/ARHP members. Similar to the Rheumatology Clinical Registry (RCR), RISE will provide quality reporting, patient population management and practice improvement capabilities. In addition, RISE has the ability to sync with EHRs, reducing the need for additional work by physicians and their staff.
With the use of RISE, your staff will be able to measure your practice’s performance against national benchmarks and generate reports tailored to ensure improvement and success in your practice. RISE’s collection of demographic data, medication data and other important disease activity indicators will help your practice improve the quality of patient care.
Further, RISE has been certified as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR), which allows rheumatologists to opt out of other quality reporting requirements. Reporting for Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) is an example of one of the quality reporting options available for those doctors who use RISE. You can currently submit the RA Measures Group using this registry.
