Self-nomination letters from physician registries requesting inclusion in the CMS PQRI registry payment program must be received by CMS by 5 p.m. Saturday, May 31. The letter should also include which 2008 PQRI measures the registry intends to submit on behalf of its participants. The letter should be sent to: PQRI Registry Self-Nomination Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Office of Clinical Standards and Quality Quality Measurement and Health Assessment Group 7500 Security Boulevard Mail Stop S3-02-01 Baltimore, MD 21244.

To qualify for inclusion, registries must have been launched prior to January 1, 2008 and meet other CMS requirements. For details on the PQRI registry self-nomination process and registry requirements, please download the four-page PDF document 2008 PQRI Registry Requirements for Submission Under New Options at the CMS PQRI Web site.

Last month, CMS announced alternative reporting periods and alternative criteria for satisfactorily reporting through qualified registry-based reporting.

Patient registries are playing important roles in disease management and quality initiatives and in the construction of medical homes. The Healthcare Intelligence Network is wrapping up the last few days of an e-survey on patient registry use in the healthcare industry. Complete the survey by May 31 and you’ll get a complimentary e-summary of the results.
