The Rheumatology Informatics System for Effectiveness (RISE) Registry, launched in June 2014, is an enhanced version of the ACR’s Rheumatology Clinical Registry (RCR), designed to provide superior quality reporting. RISE was created as a result of the ACR’s efforts to achieve improved individual outcomes while simultaneously advancing rheumatology as a field.
What sets RISE apart from the RCR is its simplified data entry process. RISE automatically syncs with electronic health records (EHRs) for a seamless integration into your practice. After clinical documentation data are entered into the EHR, RISE retrieves the data needed for quality reporting purposes. Therefore, providers who use RISE will automatically comply with reporting requirements and avoid penalties.
RISE creates quality improvement reports tailored to advance practice decisions and improve patient outcomes. Users are able to benchmark their performance on key rheumatology clinical quality measures. It also provides users with access to anonymous aggregate data from other practices across the nation, serving as a source of comparative research. Data collected from RISE will help providers and researchers discover solutions to transform care and will serve to inform and empower conversations with key external stakeholders.
RISE is currently available free of charge to a limited number of active ACR/ARHP members! Register for free today.
