APA is committed to helping psychiatrists navigate the landscape of quality improvement and measurement-based care. As such, the creation of a mental health registry will:
- Help psychiatrists meet new quality reporting requirements and deliver high quality care
- Help psychiatrists avoid payment penalties and instead achieve bonuses for meeting CMS quality reporting requirements
- Reduce the burden of submitting Performance-in-Practice data and obtaining ABPN MOC Part IV credit to maintain board certification and hospital credentialing
The Board of Trustees in early 2016 approved the development and implementation of a mental health clinical data registry. PsychPRO is continuing to develop with the help of our early participants. For more on the development and benefits of APA's registry, read the Psychiatric News story.
