The Pathologists Quality Registry is set to launch at CAP17, the CAP's annual meeting, so that CAP members can begin submitting 2018 data on January 1, 2018. The registry also provides access to quarterly benchmarking reports that enable practices to improve care provided to patients. The registry will include 16 measures; eight of which are the current Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) measures, developed by the CAP. "The designation by the CMS of the Pathologists Quality Registry as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry is a significant achievement for CAP members, our patients, and the pathology specialty. Our registry will allow pathologists to report directly to the CMS on current and future pathology-specific measures, thus fulfilling CMS reporting requirements while closely tracking the quality of their practices," said CAP President Richard C. Friedberg, MD, PhD, FCAP. The CAP is working with FIGmd, the leading provider of clinical data registries to specialty societies, in developing the Pathologists Quality Registry. Designed specifically for the practice of pathology, this registry will ensure pathologists have a mechanism for quality improvement against the CAP established standards, while complying with requirements under the Medicare QPP. About the College of American Pathologists As the world's largest organization of board-certified pathologists and leading provider of laboratory accreditation and proficiency testing programs, the College of American Pathologists (CAP) serves patients, pathologists, and the public by fostering and advocating excellence in the practice of pathology and laboratory medicine worldwide.

The worldwide market for large group physician practice computer assisted coding at $323 million in 2016, is anticipated to reach $1.1 billion by 2023. Large physician practices seek next generation computer assisted coding to support further automation of the billing process and use of analytics to achieve higher and faster payments for services rendered. The complete report provides a comprehensive analysis of Large Group Physician Practice Computer Assisted Coding in different categories, illustrating the diversity of software market segments. A complete procedure analysis is done, looking at numbers of procedures and doing penetration analysis. Major health plans report a smooth transition to ICD-10. This is due to rigorous testing for six years. ICD-10 has had a positive impact on reimbursement. ICD-10 coding system requires use of 72,000 procedure codes and 68,000 CM codes, as opposed to the 4,000 and 14,000 in the ICD-9 system. Managing high volume of codes requires automation. Healthcare providers and payers use complex coding systems, which drives demand for technologically advanced CAC systems. The market for computer-assisted coding grows because it provides management of workflow process value by encouraging increasing efficiency in care delivery for large professional physician practices and ambulatory clinical facilities. By making more granular demarcation of diagnoses and care provided for each diagnosis, greater visibility into the care delivery system is provided. Greater visibility brings more ability to adapt the system to successful treatments. Large Group Physician Practice Computer Assisted Coding Executive Summary 1.

The American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) is pleased to announce over 1600 clinicians submitted data to the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) through the ABFM’s online submission process and through the PRIME Patient Data Registry. The Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) is a quality reporting program that encourages individual eligible professionals (EPs) and group practices to report information on the quality of care to Medicare. PQRS gives participating EPs and group practices the opportunity to assess the quality of care they provide to their patients, helping to ensure that patients get the right care at the right time. By reporting on PQRS quality measures, individual EPs and group practices can also quantify how often they are meeting a particular quality metric. The PRIME Registry is a population health and performance improvement tool for clinicians and practices. It extracts patient data from the physician’s electronic health record (EHR) and turns it into actionable measures. PRIME is registered as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry and Specialty Registry open to all Primary Care Physicians—Family Medicine, Pediatrics, Internal Medicine, Obstetricians/Gynecologists, as well as Physicians Assistants and Nurse Practitioners.
