EyeCare Registry collects individual patient data from multiple sources, including member practice EHRs and hospital discharge summaries. The goal is to provide our members with the best possible data—data they can use to demonstrate the value of their contributions to a coordinated care team.
If providers do not embrace health care reform they stand to lose 25% to 40% of their patients to Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and health care exchanges. The ACA has fostered the development of new health care delivery organizations that are targeting commercial, Medicaid and Medicare members. If they succeed, with the support of CMS (Medicare) and HHS (Health & Human Services), the negative financial impact on most medical practices may be significant.
Doctor reimbursements will be transitioning from a fee-for-service model to a system based on patient clinical outcomes. This system requires eye care providers to conform to new health care regulations which require providers to track and analyze a patient’s clinical outcomes.
There is an urgent need for eye care providers to have access to a registry, or clinical data repository, which generates Business Intelligence (BI) based on outcome analysis. Until now, there has been no registry dedicated to eye care providers.
Now, there is The Eye Care Registry.
